The course: one mile loop in downtown Bend, on Bond, Greenwood, Wall, Idaho, and Georgia. USATF sanctioned course map will be posted soon.
Entrants: Elite women will start first by a margin to be determined by the field. They will be followed by elite men and then the community mile. Community mile registrations will be limited to 100.
