Welcome to the Helvetia Half Marathon & 10K run/walk. We are excited for the annual running 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 & 10K begins and ends at Ron Tonkin Field, home of the Hillsboro Hops. The spectacular course 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 center field in perfect view of the giant screen amid a cheering crowd where Helvetia Tavern Burgers (meat or veggie) and beer garden await.  It’s no wonder the Helvetia Half Marathon is 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 Marathon & 10K. Sign up today! 



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.
