Happy Girls Half Marathon

Happy Girls Half MarathonOn Memorial Day weekend, the Happy Girls Half Marathon is taking place: this second annual event features the eponymous Half Marathon, as well as a 5K run and a “Happy Little Kids” 1.5K run spread out over Saturday and Sunday (the 26th and 27th) and offers up a number of prizes, swag—and a great time.

Grab your girlfriends and join us in beautiful Bend, Oregon for the Happy Girls Half Marathon, 5K, and Happy Little Kids Runs! The scenic route starting along the Deschutes River is perfect for beginners as well as seasoned runners. Terrain includes a mix of gentle trails and paved surfaces. Bring your daughter, sister, aunt, mom, or best friend, and make it a fabulous holiday weekend in Bend!

Everything starts at Riverbend Park at 799 Southwest Columbia, just southwest of the Old Mill District. Race registration fees range from $65 (for the first 50 people) to $110 (the day of) and the actual half marathon and 5K races take place on Sunday (the Happy Kids starts at 1:30pm on Saturday). The beneficiary of proceeds from the run is the KIDS Center, a fantastic organization that does really good work in the community.
