Running in Ashland

Visit this historic Pacific Northwest town for some great running, racing and food.

Bordered by emerald landscape just 15 miles north of the California border sits Ashland, a quaint Renaissance-esque stop best known for Shakespeare, good grub and trail running.

“From town or anywhere along our 5-mile corridor you can be on dirt in a matter of moments,” says Hal Koerner, two-time Western States 100 champion and owner of Rogue Valley Runners in downtown Ashland. “The terrain here is forgiving but the climbs and descents are rather robust.
