Race Preview: 2021 Helvetia Half | 10K | 5K (Hillsboro)

The Helvetia Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K, a Run with Paula event, is coming up on Saturday, June 12. Though it’s not yet been confirmed to be an in-person race, you’ll still be guaranteed all of the great swag in any case!

If hosting this event live is a go, all three races start and end on Ron Tonkin Field, home of the Hillsboro Hops Field. It’s a scenic course, taking runners through the small town of Helvetia and past the historic Helvetia Tavern. Fingers crossed there will be the post-race party with music, beer, burgers, and runners on the jumbotron. You will have earned it after this hilly course!

Run Oregon has been there a time or two – read our recaps from 2017, 2018, and 2019!
