Route description
Route description

The Half Marathon course is comprised of three loops (one of which is run twice) over quiet and scenic country roads. Begin opposite the tennis courts adjacent to the running track circling the football stadium. Enter Croeni Rd and run north across Jacobson and through a beautiful business park before crossing West Union Rd into the countryside dominated by farmers’ fields and wineries. There is little elevation gain for the first 1+ miles, then a few moderate climbs (maximum elevation gain of 50 ft) before coming to Heart Break Hill.

From MP 2.98 to MP 3.98 there is an elevation difference of +150 ft or +193 ft when considering the few downhills mixed included. Within this section, dubbed “Heart Break Hill”, each participant will be timed and have their time & pace reported like it was a separate race. The fastest man and woman will receive a special prize.

Once you reach the summit, the course is mostly flat with one major downhill as you conclude the Heart Break Loop which will be run only once. The remainder of the course has a lot of flat terrain with only a few moderate rolling hills where the maximum elevation gain is less than 50 ft. This loop you will run twice. Conclude the run by returning on Century Blvd to Croeni, through the business park and around the running track to the finish line inside the stadium.

Get directionsExternalLink

Liberty High School (Start / Finish Venue) is located just off the Sunset Hwy (US 26). Take exit 62B (Cornelius Pass – north) for 0.4 miles to Wagon Way (the first traffic light). Turn left onto Wagon Way and Liberty High School is located 1/4 mile down the road on the right. There is plenty of parking in the east and west lots.

Liberty High School is conveniently located approximately 12 miles west of the Sunset Hwy tunnels where US 26 meets I-405. With nearly all the driving being on a highway, this equates to approximately 15 minutes of additional driving time from the typical downtown Portland race. You need only navigate a total of two traffic lights and you will not have to search for a place to park or have to park far away from the start line.
