Leave the City Behind: Helvetia Half Marathon (Hillsboro)

When you read that a race is on their 23rd annual event, you know these are folks who know what they’re doing. And as a prior participant in Run with Paula events, I am double-sure they know what they’re doing. And you should know it too. And we hope you know about the Helvetia Half Marathon (5K & 10K).

Read our 2022 recap here!

At this race, participants have the opportunity to escape their neighborhood running routes for an adventure in the countryside. The route takes runners and walkers over some challenging hills and a bit of rocky terrain.

But the rewards include beautiful farmland, wide-open skies, and a finish line in a stadium of cheering volunteers. There are lots of reasons this event is regularly ranked among the best half marathons in the Northwest.

The race is welcoming for the whole family to get involved. The half marathon distance is open for 4 hours so anyone anticipating a longer timeline should sign up for the early walk start. Plus that’s another way to get everyone to the finish line celebration together.
