This event is open to all skills and abilities. This course is 5k (3.1 miles) starting and finishing in Bend's beautiful Drake Park. The course takes you south toward the historic Old Mill District and Mill Point Business Park, winds back through McKay Park and residential neighborhoods, and returns to Drake Park where festivities and the finish line await. The route is mostly flat with hills on Columbia and Shevlin-Hixon. The course will be well marked. Aid stations will offer water, and volunteers along the course will encourage and help direct participants. View race map

Please do not bring any other wheeled devices, including skates and bicycles, onto the course. Wheelchairs, assistive mobility equipment, and service animals are excluded from this policy. Thank you for helping to ensure that all participants have a safe and enjoyable experience during the Heaven Can Wait event.
