Happy Girls Half Marathon and 5k Runs October 24th

The Happy Girls Run offers a half marathon and 5k in Sisters, Oregon on Saturday, October 24th.  For women only, this is a great excuse to head to Sisters for a fall weekend getaway with girlfriends. The half marathon is a point- to-point trail run along the Peterson Ridge Trail System, just outside of Sisters. It starts at the top of Peterson Ridge and follows single-track trails for the majority of the run with forest, some rolling hills and views the whole way. There will be three aid stations along the course, at mile 3.6, 6.7 and 10.4. Aid stations will offer water, GU brew and GU gels. The 5k course will start and end at the Five Pine Lode and run through downtown Sisters. The 5k is on pavement, flat and will have an aid station around the halfway point.

Packet pick- up and Women’s Expo will be held Friday, October 23rd at the Five Pine Lodge in Sisters from 3pm-7pm. Free prizes, swag and vendors will be in the conference hall and everyone is invited.  Shuttle bus tickets will be given out at packet pick-up since parking is very limited at Five Pine Lodge. Shuttles start at 7:15am and run until 8:15am on race morning. All half marathon participants must shuttle from Sisters Elementary School since there is no parking at the top of Peterson Ridge. The half marathon waves begin at 9am and the 5k starts at 9:30am.

Happy Girls Belt Buckle

Post-race celebration will include Three Creek’s beer, Bendistillery cocktails, catered food from Bethlyn’s Global Fusion and baked goods from The Village Baker. All half marathon finishers will receive a belt buckle and prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers and overall Master winners in the 5k and half marathon. Online registration is available through October 22nd. The half marathon costs $90 and all participants receive a custom Happy Girls race shirt. The 5k costs $40 and all participants receive custom Happy Girls active wear. If spots are still available, there will be limited late registration for the 5k and half marathon at Five Pine Lodge Campus beginning at 7am on October 24th.

Grab some girlfriends and run or walk the Happy Girls Half Marathon or 5k. The views will be spectacular, the course will be marked and well supported and the finish line will have a girl themed celebration. Participants have four hours to complete the half marathon.
