It's one of Oregon's newest races, and last year it was a hit among participants. Several people were astounding at how well the inaugural race went last year, that this year's race directors need to be prepared! Set for Saturday August 9, 2014 in Welches is sure to be another hit! Near Sandy Oregon, this race is beautiful as you run near the lush forests of Mt Hood. What: Huckleberry Half Marathon & 10K When: August 9, 2014, 6:30a Where: Welches Middle School, 24903 E Salmon River, Welches, OR

Course: The Half Marathon route is mostly a large loop on all-paved flat and rolling hills. Six miles of the half marathon leads runners beyond the border of the National Forest road to the turnaround at the Green Canyon trailhead—with scenery of the Salmon River, campground and bridge. The 10K Route takes you south on Salmon River Rd. and then take Fairway Ave. while breathing in the exhilarating Cascade Range. Continuing south on Welches Rd., you’ll enjoy the scenery of moss-filled trees and woodsy homes. Finally, you’ll come to Salmon River Rd. to circle back to the start.

Register: Online ; $59 half marathon and $35 for the 10k until July 1st, 2014 (Limited Entry- No refunds)

You get: Tech Shirt, Chip Timing, Finisher’s Medal, Free Photos, and Food at the end of the race.

This looks like a really amazing race from our recap last year and other’s comments on our Facebook page. Check out the Beered Runner’s Review last year here.

  1. This is a fun race. And the medal last year was a wood bigfoot. Super unique.
