The Bend Trail Series™ is a super-cool, low-key series of trail races at different trails in Bend, Oregon. This four-race Series is held on Thursday evenings and each race covers a different course, ranging from 4-7 miles. Runners who participate in at least three races for the Series are included in the overall Series standings, and doing well in the Series lands you some fantastic gear from our great sponsors. There is a post-Series party held immediately after the final race at the new eastside 10 Barrel Taproom. There we will present awards to Series winners, hold a raffle, and enjoy a well-deserved beer & pizza. Maps are posted for each route the Monday before each race on this site’s Route page and on the Facebook page. Get ready to run some trails!
