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. 

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

WHY FUNDRAISE WITH TEAM SIERRA

 
 

It's clear that the climate crisis is not just one of the greatest threats we face: it's already impacting the people and places we love. Our air, water, and home are threatened — and it's time to act.

 
 

The crisis may feel daunting, but we can do something about it.

 
 

We know that Team Sierra teammates thrive on big goals and meaningful work. In 3 short years, we've raised close to $1 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.

 
 

Individual Fundraising Minimum: $100
