Race Preview: 2021 Independence Day Half Marathon / 5K / 10K (Champoeg State Park)

Run with Paula’s Independence Day Half Marathon (and 10K and 5K) has been approved to be held in-person! It will be held on Sunday, July 4th in the beautiful Champoeg State Park.

The races start near the Riverside Pavilion and run on paved bike paths and park roads. The 5K and 10K races are out and back courses, while the half marathon course is a double loop of the 10K course (plus a little extra). The park has plenty of space to hang out and enjoy the day post-race. Unfortunately strollers and dogs aren’t allowed in the race, but bring them to the park to explore with after!
