Helvetia Half Marathon, 15K, and 10K Run/Walk, and 25mi Bike Race
Saturday, June 10 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
June 10, 2017 – The popular Helvetia Half Marathon, 15K, & 10K run/walk has a major addition this year. NEW in 2017 is a 25 mile bike race through gorgeous scenery! We are excited for the annual running, and riding, of this award winning event where you “Leave the City Behind“. Come enjoy this scenic course with breathtaking views of the gorgeous countryside in rural Washington County.
The Helvetia Half, 15K, 10K and 25mi bike race begins and ends at Ron Tonkin Field, home of the Hillsboro Hops. The spectacular contained course with road closure travels through the pasturelands of Northwest Oregon; past the hamlet of Helvetia and its historic landmark, Helvetia Tavern, and back to the Ron Tonkin Field for a grand finish in front of 3,000 runners for bike racers, and in center field in perfect view of the giant screen amid a cheering crowd for runners and walkers. Helvetia Tavern Burgers (meat or veggie) and beer garden await participants. It’s no wonder the Helvetia Half Marathon has been voted the BEST HALF MARATHON in the Northwest! This course is hilly and challenging which makes the reward even better! Enjoy all of this and live music at the 17th Annual Helvetia Half, 15K, 10K and 25mi Bike Race.
Don’t forget your costume! We will be hosting a “Best Farm Animal” Costume Contest.
2016 Participant Feedback
Fun event. The atmosphere was superb. I really enjoyed the course route, first time running it so I am sure I missed a lot of the scenery! I’m be back for sure and bring some runners from my area with me. The band was awesome. This was my sixth 1/2 marathon this year and it was the best. –Matt P.
