Race Preview: 2021 Salmon Run (Live!)

The 32nd annual  Salmon Run, one of the oldest races in Bend, will be a live event on April 10 with a new location. The venue for the Salmon Run has moved to Pronghorn Resort where you can run a 5K, 10K, or Half Marathon. The new course will include a mix of trails and road. Plan now to run in the high desert; enjoy the fresh air, beautiful views, and a great race while raising money for The Environmental Center. This event will have staffed aid stations and professional medical support.

After successfully hosting two in-person events in 2020: the Haulin’ Aspen Run in Bend and the Happy Girls Run in Sisters, Lay It Out Events has become a name that is synonymous with safe and healthy running events in the era of COVID-19. We all know staying active and exercising are crucial to mental and physical wellbeing. Races, like the Salmon Run, are the perfect way to stay motivated and healthy.

All live participants will receive a goody bag, a finisher’s medal, a Salmon Run buff, and post-race drinks/refreshments. You can also purchase a long-sleeve race tee or a Salmon Run hoody.
