Broken Vista 50K and Trail Half Marathon
June 8, 2024
The Broken/Vista 50k and Trail Half features a stunningly beautiful course winding through the Deschutes National Forest from the Swampy Lakes Sno-Park just outside Bend, OR.
The course is entirely off-road and primarily consists of beautiful single-track with medium technical difficulty. The remainder of the course is fire road. Both distances are a single-loop design starting and finishing from the Swampy Lakes Sno Park. In the 50k you’ll get some awesome views of Broken Top and Mt Bachelor!
The half marathon winds through the high alpine stands and into the meadows of Swede Ridge. The 50k ventures further east of the Swede Ridge and loops down into the Skyliners valley for an adventure characteristic of the PNW.
Here’s the twist – in most years you’ll encounter snow pack 😀 Will it be hard? Yes. Will it kick your butt? Probably. Will it be EPIC? Oh heck yes! Your reward for powering through the challenges is a life-defining moment of achievement.
Poles are permitted but you must be aware of your surroundings – the poles will be considered an extension of you, and cannot impede or endanger those around you.
