Update 8/7: WE’RE GOING VIRTUAL. We do not believe it is safe or wise to bring people together to race yet and so are converting this year’s Bend Trail Series to a virtual event. Racers will have a week to run each actual race course and submit their result. See the Virtual Series page for more information how it’ll work. It’s going to be fun and feel good to kinda race! An email was sent to all registered and waitlisted racers today with options to go virtual or receive a race credit. Registration is reopened.
Update 4/27: We are pleased to be able to reschedule the Bend Trail Series to September/October! An email was sent today to all registered runners with information about the new dates and the race credit process for those who cannot run the new schedule. Registration has reopened, although those who sign up for the rescheduled Series are not charged yet. We will process credit cards when the event is closer and we’re confident we can send runners out on the trails.
Update 4/21: At this point, we are still hoping to have the Series as scheduled. We do have alternative plans in the works if we cannot. We’ll make a final decision in early May. This article on our home page is kept up-to-date with any changes to our races.
The Bend Trail Series™ is a super-cool, low-key series of trail races at different trails in Bend, Oregon. This four-race Series is held on Thursday evenings and each race covers a different course, ranging from 4-7 miles. Runners who participate in at least three races for the Series are included in the overall Series standings, and doing well in the Series lands you some fantastic gear from our great sponsors.
There is a post-Series party held immediately after the final race at the new eastside 10 Barrel Taproom. There we will present awards to Series winners, hold a raffle, and enjoy a well-deserved beer & pizza.
Get ready to run some trails!
