Bend Half Marathon

  • Bend Half Marathon Start My Journey

This is not just any race – we're in a race to save our one and only planet. Join Team Sierra at the 2020 Bend Marathon & Half Marathon on April 19 to do what you love while helping to ensure a livable home for us and future generations.

Stronger and more frequent natural disasters. A lack of clean air and safe drinking water in our most vulnerable communities. Various reports outlining irreversible damage to our planet. It's clear that the climate crisis is not just one of the greatest threats we face. It's already here: People around the country and world are being impacted by our warming planet every day.

We also know we can do something about it. Tackling this global threat will take ambitious goals and plans – and luckily, we know that Team Sierra teammates thrive on big goals and hard, meaningful work.

Entries are limited and are first-come first-served to those who commit to raising $1,000 for Sierra Club and can be applied to either the Marathon or Half Marathon distance.
So join Team Sierra in Bend and cross the finish line knowing you made a real impact raising critical funds to protect our planet.

The Bend Half Marathon Course runs (pun intended) through the Deschutes National Forrest and the City of Bend, giving the best of both worlds! Like Sierra Club, the Bend Marathon team is committed to sustainability and a healthy future. All aid stations are cupless, reducing waste and preventing litter. 

When you cross that finish line, you'll celebrate with beverages from Deschutes Brewery, a photo area, and goodies from other vendors!
