Pancake Run – Sunday, January 31, 9am

This is our first members-only event. Each member may bring a guest. The event will be held at Kari and Steve Strang’s house, 61576 NW Hosmer Lake Drive, Bend. A 3–5 mile run out toward Phil’s will be followed by pancakes and a potluck brunch. CORK will be flipping the pancakes and have syrup and maybe even some bacon for you. Runners are encouraged (but not required) to help by bringing a breakfast side to share.

While it’s easiest to renew your membership online before the event, we will have a computer ready to go and/or some paper membership forms available so you can sign up at the event if you prefer. If you didn’t get your brand new, cozy-soft CORK shirt at the New Year’s Day run, we’ll have them here for you too.





USATF Cross Country National Championships

Bend is hosting the USATF Cross Country National Championships onFebruary 6 at River’s Edge Golf Course. Everyone is welcome to race. There will be a Community 4k Race as well as the National Championship races, including masters and juniors. You do not need to be a USATF member to participate in the Community Race. As host club, we’ll need help with course set up and volunteers on race day, as well as local folks running, cheering, and showing our visitors good ol’ Bend hospitality.

As a benefit to its members, CORK will reimburse a portion of your race registration for any of the races. You must be a CORK member and stop by the CORK table on Race Day to show us your race bib. We will then snail-mail you a check. One reimbursement per membership. More details will be posted on Facebook and go out in a mid- to late-January email when more race information is available.

To register for any of the races go to VisitBend.Com

To volunteer for course set up Thursday or Friday, registration on Friday or the day of the event please email karisstrang at

Your friendly CORK Board


The Central Oregon Running Klub’s mission is to promote health and fitness through running and to provide an inclusive culture that strengthens the local running community through the support of key community running events, integration with community businesses, and providing running centric activities for youth through masters runners. Since 1980, CORK has been involved in race promotion, trail maintenance, weekly running groups, and coaching our youth to become State Champions and lifelong runners.


The Central Oregon area is unique in the variety of athletic activities available to the local citizens and visitors. From beautiful country roads, friendly paths that wind through town along the river, to miles of singletrack trails, the Central Oregon area has the perfect route for every runner. That’s why so many runners call Central Oregon home.
