A new chapter begins this spring with the fifth edition of the Bend Marathon and Half Marathon held April 20. In addition to new management the event was acquired by Bend locals Kari Strang and Max King this past fall. The race has announced new courses, new sponsors and a hoppin’ finish party featuring kombucha and craft beer. The updated scenic courses take runners on a tour through West Bend neighborhood parks, ponderosa pine forests, and along the Deschutes River. Participants travel from all over the globe for this event which also includes a 10K and family 5K.
