The inaugural Happy Girls Run Forest Grove will take place at the beautiful Henry Hagg Lake County Park on September 22, 2013. Join women runners from across Oregon for this special event!
Based on our popular Happy Girls Run in Bend, Ore. that takes place over Memorial Day, Happy Girls Forest Grove will feature a Half Marathon, 10k, and 5k race. The Happy Girls Runs are noted for their exciting pre- and post-race parties, special entertainment, and the custom-made sterling silver necklaces for half-marathon finishers.
The Half Marathon course will take runners around the circumference the lake on a mix of roads and trails. The 5k and 10k races will be primarily on roads and are both out and back along the far west side of the lake. All races feature incredible views of the lake and opportunities to see wildlife.
Henry Hagg Lake is just 45 minutes from Portland, and transportation options will be available. In addition to hosting a wide variety of songbirds, water fowl, and wild flowers, Henry Hagg Lake is the second largest habitat for the Kincaid’s lupine and Fenders Blue butterfly, an endangered butterfly only found in the Willamette Valley.
NOTE: This race is limited to 500 runners, so register early to make sure you get a spot!
