Race Preview: 2016 Happy Girls Run (Sisters)

To run a Happy Girls race is to experience a nearly 100% race field of women only runners. If you have ever run a race that is exclusive to women or men, you know that there is something unique about being surrounded by very like-minded people as you make your way to the finish. In a way, it's like being on a team of strangers, and yet everyone on the team gets along.

Lay It Out Events has built each event into more than just a race, including a Girls Night Out for the ladies, the night before the race. From 3-7pm on Friday November 4th, join in on the pre-race celebration including snacks, Bendistillery cocktails,  Three Creek Brewing craft beer and vendors. 1/2 Marathon Swag bags include HG T-shirt and 5k finishers will receive the super cute HG Sock Guy socks. All finishers will receive a Happy Girls Run glass.

As for the race, the half marathon runs along Peterson Ridge, which is a quasi challenging trail but worth it, with views of the beautiful Sisters mountains. The 5k is a great run right through downtown Sisters.

When: Saturday, November 5th.

Registration: The 1/2 marathon is sold out but the 5K is still available here.
