Course Description

The challenging Bend Marathon starts in downtown Bend, goes through the heart of the city, and then heads north along the Deschutes River. At mile 5, the course turns back south and passes through downtown again. The course then travels out to the Cascade Lakes National Scenic Byway with a turn around near Seventh Mountain Resort. The last section of the course goes through Tetherow neighborhood to the West Bend Trail.

The course is run on approximately 85% pavement and 15% gravel trail with about 500 feet between the high and low elevations of the route.
