The Salmon Run is one of Bend’s oldest organized races and a local favorite. This race honors the mighty Salmon who make an expedition of a lifetime back to their homes each year – overcoming countless obstacles on their river journeys. In much the same way, this is a homecoming to runners who return each year to this beautiful race which follows the path of the Deschutes River. You can choose your own migration distance – half-marathon, 10-K, 5K, Little Fry Children’s Race. Proceeds benefit the Environmental Center of Bend.
