Kick-off 2023 with a true Bend tradition. The Salmon Run is the starting ground for those looking to be a factor in the racing scene. Have fun in the cooler temperatures, easy flat terrain, and hopefully crystal-clear Central Oregon skies!
Each year, the salmon make a mighty expedition back to their homes. Traveling thousands of miles and overcoming countless obstacles on their river journeys. Taking inspiration from this icon of the Pacific Northwest, Bend Races are excited to welcome you to join hundreds of runners on their own journeys. Choose the distance that works for you; 5K, 10K, or half marathon. Each race is professionally chip-timed and supported by outstanding event staff and medical personnel who are there for you at every turn.
