BHM 2020 COVID-19 Update From RWP

Beaverton Half Marathon 2020 Postponed Due To COVID-19.

The 2020 Beaverton Half Marathon Event has been officially postponed until 2021 (stay tuned for details). Governor Kate Brown has banned large events in the State of Oregon so until such time as large group gatherings are allowed, we will be postponing our events and anxiously awaiting the time when we can come together to share our passion for running and walking.  We are committed to adhering to the current recommendations by health officials and in the very near future, we will resume producing safe, world-class events.

Having been impacted by COVID-19 as a race director and as a participant, I understand and appreciate all the training and sacrifices that go into preparing for events. I want to encourage you to continue working toward your fitness goals for your mental well-being and for your physical health. Take time to encourage and support those around you to keep on running and walking. BHM will be back in 2021.

At this time, we are deferring all BHM 2020 registrations to the 2021 event. 

• Automatic Deferment: If you are registered for Beaverton 2020, your registration has been automatically transferred to Beaverton 2021 (stay tuned for details). Of course, any fees have been waived.

 

We recognize that this is not ideal but deferral does put a solid event on your 2021 event calendar! In the meantime, keep lacing them up and hitting the tracks, trails, paths, and roads but mostly, stay safe! We are committed to you and we are dedicated to the sport of endurance running and walking. We will see you all at one our future starting lines.
