The Hop Hop Half Marathon and 5K presented by Foot Traffic is set for Saturday, March 26th, and offers a pleasant and mostly flat course along the paved bike path next to Marine Drive and the Columbia River. Whether you’re a “rabbit” who plans to set the pace or you’re just out to run easy and “egg on” your friends, this Easter themed event is a lot of fun.
The race benefits the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund, and participants receive a tech shirt (guaranteed if registered by March 1st!), a “giant” Easter egg medal, post-race brunch and mimosa, and a commemorative champagne/mimosa flute glass. Costumes are encouraged but not mandatory.
