We are well into spring in the Pacific Northwest, with all of the beautiful flowers, warmer temperatures, and sunshine days to prove it. Those nicer days mean more chances to get outside for a run, a walk, or an adventure in the countryside.
And thanks to the leaders at Run with Paula, there’s a perfect race in Hillsboro this June to help you “Leave the City Behind.” The Helvetia Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K races are coming up on Saturday, June 8. All three races start and end on the Hillsboro Hops Field. It’s a scenic and challenging course in between so you will earn that post-race party with music, beer, burgers, and finisher medal. I’ve run this race before and all those westside hills will give you a great workout.
After your race, stick around for live music by Hit Machine. This would be a great race to bring guests to so you can celebrate together and then head on toward the beach, enjoy some shopping in the area, or find a nice park for a nap in (hopefully) the sunshine.
It’s an amazing race put on by a team that knows and loves the local running community. Check it out!
