Event Details

The Providence Rogue Marathon, Half Marathon and 10k celebrates the bounty of our region and highlights the beauty of Southern Oregon. The race is completely on an asphalt pathway so you have safety during your run but the luxury of checking out the Rogue Valley views along the way without battling traffic or intersections. Along the race, there will be traditional support with food and drinks but be careful of the “Table of Temptation” which will have items to challenge your inner-self! The finish line will feature the exciting Southern Oregon Harvest Festival and BrewFest where participants, family and friends, and especially children, can enjoy the variety of activities this festival has to offer — live music, food vendors, grape stomping, chili cook off, and a beer garden with over 70 micro beer vendors!

The race will afford runners and walkers the opportunity to traverse several cities in the Rogue Valley and see the beautiful sites along the Bear Creek Greenway. Multiple water, food and aid stations will be stationed throughout the course for motivation and support. There will be changing facilities at the Expo so you can enjoy the festivities comfortably.
