Looking forward to real, live races? You’re not alone. Good news is coming your way in 2021 from the Happy Girls Run Series! You’ll have three gorgeous events to look forward to, with distances of 5k, 10k, and Half Marathon to choose from.
Lay It Out Events hosted 2 live races in 2020 and has done a fabulous job of keeping everything safe in COVID-19 times, and the community has overwhelmingly supported bringing us the Happy Girl Series in 2021. What’s on the schedule for next year?
On May 29th, 2021 Happy Girls Bend will take place in Central Oregon. Check out the gorgeous scenery of Seventh Mountain Resort (a brand new course and venue in 2021!) stop at the well-supported aid stations, and feel the luxury of a real finish line again. The swag and after party will be well worth the trip.
2021 Happy Girls Spokane will occur on September 18th in 2021, and you’ll be treated to the beautiful trails of Riverside State Park along the Spokane River. Fall is the most gorgeous time of year in the Pacific NW, and this event will showcase all of that. Come Friday for a fun Women’s Expo and get all your race goodies, some cocktails, and food!
Come to Sisters, OR for 2021 Happy Girls Sisters on October 30th. This single track trail which begins at FivePine Resort and boasts views of the Cascades will be fast and pretty. Only the 5k and Half Marathon distances are available for this event, and the Half is limited to 500 participants and will SELL OUT, so register early! The 5k will tour the western-themed downtown area of Sisters, and the Half will travel the Deschutes National Forest on the Peterson Ridge Trail system. Both cross the finish line back at Five Pines.
If you’re still not feeling comfortable with in-person races, no problem. There will be virtual options for all of the races as well, and you and your friends and family can join from wherever you wish. All the swag will be mailed to your door and include your race tee and a finisher’s medal.
Both the Bend and Spokane races also have a Happy Little Kids race available for your kiddos. All kids will receive a bib, a participation ribbon, and some delicious treats. Bring your adult race bib to the registration table for one FREE registration to the kids run. Additional registration is only $5 a child.
