The Broken/Vista Trail Half & Marathon features a stunningly beautiful course winding through the Deschutes National Forest from the Swampy Lakes Sno-Park just outside Bend, OR.

With views of the Oregon Cascades this pine-studded route will challenge you with 1350 ft of gain in the half marathon and 3100 ft of gain in the full marathon. Broken/Vista is certified, sanctioned, and conducted with the highest standards for quality. A portion of the proceeds from this event is donated to the Central Oregon Trail Alliance (COTA) who build and maintain the awesome trail systems here in Bend. 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 marathon 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 full marathon 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 ūüėÄ 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.

CUTOFFS: The half marathon will have a cutoff of 1:00pm (5 hours; 22:54/mi) and the marathon will have a cutoff of 4:00pm (9 hours; 20:36/mi). A cutoff of 12:45pm will also apply for the marathon at the aid station at 17.5 miles.
