Be part of the ninth annual Northwest Community Credit Union Haulin’ Aspen, taking place Sunday, August 11, 2013. Participate in one of Oregon’s favorite trail running races! The Haulin’ Aspen features a trail half marathon and Central Oregon’s only trail full marathon. New for 2013, Haulin Aspen brings the Half As-half a half marathon. In addition, Ruff Wear is sponsoring dog run for this shorter distance!

This spectacular race features a great mix of fast single track, open jeep trails, cool valleys and amazing views. This year’s course includes picturesque single-track trail runs through beautiful Shevlin Park, Phil’s Trail, and higher up along the Mrazek trail. The post-race experience at Ruff Wear’s parking lot includes fantastic food and locally brewed beer from Deschutes Brewery and cocktails from Bendistillery. A portion of the event’s proceeds benefit the Bend Endurance Academy.

As stated above, Ruff Wear is sponsoring a dog run for this year’s Half As, which is roughly a 6.5 mile run. For those of you with furry family members, this a great chance to get them out on the trail and enjoy an event with you. There will be doggie bowls at each of the aid stations to make sure your pooch remains as hydrated as you.
