The Bend Marathon, in it’s 5th year of running, is now hosted by local friends and running enthusiasts, Kari Strang and Max King. Kari and Max believe that Bend, Oregon is one of the most spectacular places on the planet, and are passionate about hosting events that highlight the city’s most spectacular features. They are committed to quality running courses which provide a personal challenge that leave participants feeling accomplished and gratified, while incorporating the natural beauty, community, and fun for which Bend is well-known.

Kari and Max both reside in Bend, Oregon with their families. Kari works as a healthcare consultant, and middle-school Cross-Country and Track coach. Max, a former chemical engineer, is now a professional-runner for Salomon. They also both work at Footzone, Bend – a top rated running store in downtown Bend. In their free time, they volunteer at numerous running-related events in the greater Bend area, host summer running camps for both kids and adults (, and adventure throughout Central Oregon and the rest of the world.
