Race Preview: 2019 Haulin Aspen Trail Runs (Bend)

63ECDDD4-2116-4AA4-A96D-C9E147F8315BThere are several “must-do” races in Central Oregon, especially trail races, and Haulin Aspen is definitely one of them. Featuring the only full trail marathon in Central Oregon, Haulin Aspen also offers a half marathon and a half-as (quarter marathon). All 3 distances are in the trail system that runs out of Wanoga Sno-Park, and all 3 have some good elevation to make things interesting.

The half-as keeps it real with about 370 feet of gain, while the half makes you work a little harder with 890 feet of gain. The full, however, is a solid course, with more than 2,100 feet of gain and a nice gut-punch, 500 foot hill, at mile 22. Add to all of this the expected temps around mid-August tend to hover around the upper 80’s to the low 90’s, and you can quickly see what kind of a challenge this is! But don’t let that slow you down, the single track trails are amazing, with well packed dirt, fun winding sections, and a beautiful landscape you only get at 5,500 feet above sea level.

When: Saturday, August 10th. The full starts at 7am. The half starts at 8am. The half-as starts at 8:30.

Registration/Cost: Registration is available online. The full = $85.00. The half = $60.00. The half-as = $45.00.
