The Haulin’ Aspen Trail Run and the Bend Beer Run Return 

All 2021 Races are In-Person!

Lay It Out Events is excited to announce the addition of two more races to their line-up for 2021. Since staying active is crucial for a person’s wellbeing in the COVID-19 era, safe outdoor races are a great way to stay motivated and provide a healthy activity for everyone.

Lay It Out Events has adapted their running events to comply with safe regulations in the era of COVID-19. Expect small wave starts to ensure social distancing, limited numbers of runners and only one spectator per runner allowed. In addition, race venues are spacious to allow runners adequate elbow room.

After successfully hosting two in-person races in 2020, with positive reviews, Lay It Out Events has become a name that is synonymous with safe event practices for everyone. Some races also have a virtual component for those who feel more comfortable running on their own or from afar.

Check out the schedule below including Central Oregon’s all-trail race, the Haulin’ Aspen, and a fun 5k that offers tasty beer along the way, the Bend Beer Run. Registration is open now.

We invite runners everywhere to challenge themselves by signing up for Central Oregon’s only full trail marathon. The Haulin’ Aspen will be held on August 7, 2021 and features trails that wind through the Deschutes National Forest. Choose your distance: full marathon, half marathon or a 6.5-mile course (dubbed the “Half As”). The varying terrain and elevation are sure to challenge runners while they take in spectacular views of the pine-filled forest.

Join in virtually! 
For those who prefer not to travel and wish to run solo, we have a virtual Haulin’ Aspen option, as well. A custom race tee and medal are included in every virtual entry.

Registration is open for the 2021 Bend Beer Run!

The Bend Beer Run will be held on June 26, 2021. Participants cruise along a scenic 5k loop, following a course through Drake Park along the Deschutes River while enjoying beer from three local breweries along the way. This is a laid back fun run that lets you cool off at the finish line with a full Deschutes Brewery beer of your choice (included with every entry).
