They are having a Half Marathon in Welches on August 9th It sounds like a lot of fun so I figured I would post it up! If you love to run and admire Oregon's natural beauty, you won't ever want to miss the 2014 Huckleberry Half marathon and 10K! A quintessential Mt. Hood experience, the route is mostly a large loop on all-paved flat and rolling hills. Six miles of the half marathon leads runners beyond the border of the National Forest road to the turnaround at the Green Canyon trailhead—with scenery of the Salmon River, campground and bridge all along.
The event is chip timed, and the half marathon is a certified course. If you've wanted to explore the Mt. Hood area up close, you're off to a running start here!
