A few times a year, a race comes up on the calendar, that is just as much about the experience as it is about the run. This is the case for the Happy Girls Run in Sisters on October 23rd. Whether you choose to tackle the trails in the half-marathon, or the streets of sisters in the 5K, there is something for every type of racer at this event.
The Half Marathon: This distance takes place on the beautiful trails surrounding Sisters. The Peterson Ridge Trail system meanders among ponderosa pine for us, that helps showcase the best parts of the high desert. The Towering Pines to the viewpoints of the Cascade Range carry you through to the finish line at Five Pine Lodge.
The 10K & 5K: These distances showcase the quaint western-style streets of Sisters. Strollers are allowed but asked to remain towards the back of the starting line as to leave room for runners, of all paces, to safely start.
The Festivities: Post-race is when the real fun begins. A congratulatory cocktail, snacks, and soup are included.
This Happy Girl Run is a part of a series of runs in the Pacific Northwest, so the fun does not have to stop in Sisters. Take your happiness on the road to any or all of the Happy Girl locations!
