Last weekend several Rogue Valley runners traveled to central Oregon to partake in some trail racing. The Haulin' Aspen Half-Marathon and Marathon sends runners across some great single track trails and dirt roads not far from Bend's city central.
The half marathon was part of the La Sportiva Mountain Cup thus increasing the amount of participants and competition. More than 410 runners finished the half. The challenging (in distance, terrain and elevation gain) marathon had 117 finishers.
Ian Torrence (leading, from Ashland) and JC Callans (Eagle Point) worked together for much of the marathon. JC finished third in 3:08:24. Ian followed in fourth in 3:10:43.
Full results for both races can be found here.
