FootZone's Dirty Half..... Coming to a Trail Near You.


Lace up those running shoes and hit the trail!

FootZone’s Dirty Half, a half marathon on the Phil’s Trail network just west of Bend, will take place this Sunday morning at 8 a.m. sharp!  A 13.1-mile loop of technical single-track welcomes runners of all abilities – from Olympic caliber athletes to those covering the half marathon distance for the first time.  The Dirty Half is more than a trail running race, it’s a celebration and a party!

The course, which begins and ends at Phil’s Trailhead, is challenging with a net elevation gain/loss of 1000 ft.  Three course aid stations with provide energy drink, water, and encouragement to passing runners.  A great place to cheer on a friend or family member is on the 300 road, easily accessed from Skyliners Drive.

The Dirty Half after-party, complete with awards, great post-race goodies, product give-aways and treats from Nancy P’s, will be held near the finish line, just below the main Phil’s parking lot.

Even if you aren’t racing, come out and join in the festivities, or better yet, sign up to volunteer!
