A Marathon In Central Oregon ?!

I was delighted to read the following in the Fleet Feet newsletter this morning:

The rumors are true that Central Oregon is about to get a new Marathon. The proposed date is Saturday, June 4, 2011. The course will be USATF certified and probably a Boston Qualifier. The description is as follows:

"The course runs along scenic country roads. Mostly flat with gently rolling hills, through farmlands with magnificent mountain views. The Start and Finish meanders through numerous greenways, past water features and the tree lined roads of a well known Central Oregon Resort north of Bend, Oregon."

Curious?? Want to know more details?? So do we! Stay tuned and we'll update you with more information as we get it!

So... if you are even slightly considering a marathon in your future.... this could be the one!! I know I plan to run it! :D


  1. Hi E! I thought the Eugene Marathon was in central Oregon. But I'm no geography major. ;) I was thinking of running the EM. Keep us posted on this new one, though. I hope you're well.

  2. Kewl! Plenty of time to train.
    Hopefully they will offer a half too as that's my cup of tea ;)
    Love your new header image!
