ABOUT THE RACE
Both the 5K and 10K courses run (pun intended) along the beautiful Deschutes River and through Riverbend Park. 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.
We know that Team Sierra teammates thrive on big goals and meaningful work. In 5 short years, we've raised over to $2 million dollars to support the Sierra Club — the nation's largest grassroots environmental organization — and its work protecting wildlife and wild places, advancing clean energy solutions, and making the outdoors more accessible.
