Groovy Times at the Hippie Chick Half & Quarter Marathon

Mother’s Day is coming up and so is the 2023 Hippie Chick Half & Quarter Marathon! This event, held on May 13th this year, used to be for women only, but in more recent years, Paula has shared the love and made it co-ed!

This race takes place at Champoeg State Park and it should be another great race from Run With Paula Events. Champoeg primarily follows bike parths and park roads, and most of the course will be flat and scenic. The Half and Quarter routes share the first 6.5 miles before splitting off. There will be hydration stations along the course with water and NUUN, though all participants are encouraged to bring their own hydration devices.

There will be a costume contest, music, and plenty of food to keep you going while you’re celebrating your finish line moment.

The fun starts at 7:30AM with a half mile race for the kiddos. Parents are welcome to join their kids for that event which is intended for ages 7 and under. The Half Marathon and Quarter Marathon follow at 8:00AM. This is a popular event, so arrive early.

Swag hasn’t been announced yet, but in previous years, participants received a nice quality brightly colored mug and a technical t-shirt. All finishers will receive a medal at the finish line as well!

The beer garden will be open from 8:30 to 12:30 and you’ll find post-race food, drinks, and music here. This event is always a blast and you really need to be there!!
