Hippie Chick Half Marathon has been a tradition for female runners for many years! This year, the Hippie Chick Half Marathon will feature a half marathon, quarter marathon, and a 5k. It will be directed by the original event creator Paula Harkin, of Runwithpaula Events. This event is a celebration of women and is the original all-women race.
The course will take place at Ron Tonkins Field. With each distance the course is flat and features scenic views. The half marathon and quarter marathon will start at 8:00 am, while the 5k has a start time of 8:15am. The course can be walked or ran, and is very family friendly. There is not a better way than to celebrate that special women in your life, than participating in a race together! This year the race will fall on Mother’s Day Weekend, the best way to celebrate Mom!
When finished with the race, every participant will receive a finisher’s medal, pancake breakfast, and beer. Music will play, and during the award ceremony prizes are given to the top three finishers in each distance as well as awards to the top three in each age group.
