About the event
Welcome to Run The Rock, offering spectacular 50mile, 50K and half marathon loop-style trail races within Smith Rock State Park and the Crooked River National Grasslands, located near Bend, Oregon. Both courses offer amazing views of the Cascade Range - from Mt Hood in the north to Mt Bachelor in the south. You will pass the sheer rock faces at Smith Rock State Park - famous for rock climbing - and the unique beauty of the Crooked River National Grasslands.
