New to the Area?
Welcome to Central Oregon. If you’re a runner, and we suspect you are since you’ve made it this far, then you’ll find Central Oregon is the place you always dreamed about. With a pleathora (literally) of trails, miles of rolling country roads, and some of the best resources such as coaching, running stores, and body work specialists you’ll find anywhere in the country, we’ve got all you need to help you find your niche in the running community and keep you running healthy.
Meet fellow runners at our Monthly Group Runs. Local running stores like the Footzone (Bend), Fleet Feet (Bend), Eurosport (Sisters), and Norms Xtreme Fitness (Prineville) will help you get the right gear for whatever your need whether it be a winter run through the snow, a summer time climb in the mountains, or any type of race.
If it’s a new route that you’re after, visit our Area Trails page for trail maps and directions on how to get there.
If you’d like to join a club and get hooked into the local running community the Central Oregon Running Klub would love to have you as part of our team. We’re involved in numerous Central Oregon races and events each year as well as coaching youth teams in cross country and track and field. We have an active trail work team helping to keep our local trails like the Deschutes River Trail groomed and in prime condition. Volunteer with them on the “Trail Team” page to get involved.
