May 11, 2019 – The Hippie Chick Half Marathon, Quarter Marathon, and 5K is returning in 2019 under the direction of the original event creator, Paula Harkin of Runwithpaula Events. This all women’s event is designed to celebrate how amazing women are! This is the ORIGINAL all-women’s race! What a perfect weekend to run and walk…MOTHER’S DAY WEEKEND!! Let’s celebrate together and build our community one mile at a time, hand in hand! Grab your mom, your sister, your friend or co-worker and register now! Hippie Chicks are the best!
All Hippie Chick Races 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 winds through beautiful Washington County, Oregon on very flat, tree-lined streets with amazing scenic views. The iconic 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, live music and of course, a beer garden (ID required).
Looking for sisterhood, fun, and a professional, guided training group along the way? Let us take you on a Hippie Chick Road Trip with our 12-week Hippie Chick Training Club. All abilities are welcome. The HCTC will meet at Portland Running Co. in Beaverton every Saturday for 12-weeks culminating with the big day at Hillsboro Stadium on Mother’s Day weekend.
