Don’t miss your chance to run at one of the most beautiful National Parks in Oregon. The 42nd Annual Crater Lake Rim Runs and Marathon is just around the corner and filling fast! This event includes 3 distances: 6.7 miles, 13 miles, and a marathon. Only the 6.7 mile distance is open to walkers. All courses run along the rim of Crater Lake, so the views will be amazing. The course will be challenging with the altitude ranging from 5,980 ft. to 7,850 ft. Registration is limited to just 500 participants total. (As of July 10, there were only 76 place left!)
The courses are on paved roads except for the last 4 miles of the marathon, which is on dirt/pumice cinders. All courses include long grades with elevation loss/gains nearing 1,000 feet over 5 miles. All distances also have various time limits, so be sure to check the website to be sure you can meet the cut-off times.
On race day there will be shuttles running from various locations around the park to the start line, so if you are spending the night in the area be sure to check out the schedule.
Aid stations will be available approximately every 2 miles – after mile 3 – with sponges, electrolytes, and water. There will also be watermelon, pop, and bagels at the finish area. All finishers will receive a medal and shirt. An awards ceremony will be held afterwards with overall and age group award being given out.
