Salmon Run

May 3, 2014 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Varies

Each year, the mighty Salmon make an expedition of a lifetime back to their homes – traversing thousands of miles and overcoming countless obstacles on their river journeys. The Salmon juxtapose the infinite space of their ocean homes against the micro-streams of their birth in one monumental run. Their achievement is awesome in the true sense of the word.

Choose your own migratory distance – 5K, 10K or Half Marathon – and experience the awesomeness of that achievement as you complete your own Salmon Run!

Begin and end your adventure at Riverbend Park and imagine what a river journey could be like for the Salmon by running up and down the Deschutes River corridor in beautiful Bend, Oregon.

Each finisher will receive a pine sapling to plant in honor of the Salmons’ achievements and your own.

Post-race festivities, including a Salmon Haiku Contest, will certainly be worth your upstream success.
