Les Schwab Tires Hippie Chick Quarter Marathon, 15K & Half Marathon Run/Walk
Saturday, May 12, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
May 12, 2018 – The Hippie Chick Quarter Marathon, Half Marathon and, returning in 2018, 15K run/walk is an all women’s event that is designed to celebrate women. This event is held on Mother’s Day weekend just for that reason, and we want to help make it all about you! Instead of a medal, Hippie Chick finishers will receive a beautiful necklace that you can wear and show off all year long.
The Hippie Chick Quarter, Half and 15K courses all begin at Ron Tonkin Field in Hillsboro, OR. From the ballpark, runners and walkers will head west on Meek Rd towards Jackson School Road. The course will run through beautiful Washington County, Oregon on very flat, tree-lined streets with amazing scenic views. The beautiful rural views will provide great sights to see throughout your run or walk. The route finishes back at Ron Tonkin Field with a delicious pancake breakfast, mimosas or beer (ID required), and live music from My Happy Pill.
Costumes are encouraged! Make the most of your Hippie Chick day and dress the part. Prizes will be given to the most radical Hippie Chick costume. Gather your sisters, moms and friends and celebrate Mother’s Day with a fast race and fun party after!
You may register on race day, however you will incur an additional premium fee, and we cannot not guarantee any specific race shirt/sizes.
