The Bend Marathon on Sunday drew more runners than last year, bringing the total between 2,100 – 2,200 athletes.
Not all were marathoners — some did a 5K, 10K or half-marathon.
Even kids participated, running mile through the Old Mill District.
The event raised thousands of dollars for non-profits.
“F.A.N. Family Access Network, the Environmental Center, Bend Sustainability Fund, lots of local school clubs, football teams. It’s really a great fundraiser all around,” said Kari Strang, Bend Marathon event organizer.
