Leave The City Behind at the 2022 Helvetia Half

It’s time for the 22nd Annual Helvetia Half Marathon/10k/5k!! Last year, Run With Paula Events made a triumphant return after COVID, and we’re back for another successful run in 2022!

The Helvetia Half Marathon was voted the BEST HALF MARATHON in the Northwest, and it’s easy to see why! The course tells runners to “Leave the City Behind,” and does just that. The challenging course starts at Hillsboro Stadium, meanders out onto rolling hills, through pastures, past Helvetia hamlet, and then back into the stadium (you might even see yourself crossing the finish on the jumbotron). As per usual for a Run With Paula race, you’ll get fed after the race as well, with Baja Fresh providing you a meal and craft cocktails from Rogue Brewery!


Some benefits of running this race (as per the race website):

  • Spectacular Course

  • Post Race To-Go Meal (Baja Fresh!)

  • Post Race Music (DJ Dave)

  • Amazing Finisher Medal

  • Cool Technical Running Shirt

  • Complimentary Canned Craft Cocktail or Canned Beer (Rogue!)
