Q: Are walkers welcome?

A: Yes! Our half marathon course is open for four hours!

Q: Can a friend pick up my packet?

A: Yes! They will just need to have your confirmation email or bib number

Q: Can I switch distances?

A: You can switch from the half marathon to the 10K for no charge up to one week before the race. To change distances between the half marathon and the 10K, you can do it yourself by going into your account. You may change from the half to the 10K but fees will not be refunded. If you change from the 10K to the half marathon, you will be charged the difference in registration fees. The 5K is now full and so transferring to the 5K is not possible.

Q: Is there somewhere I can leave my stuff during the race?

A: Yes! We offer free gear check for all participants. Gear check opens at 6:30am. It is highly recommended that you check your gear by 7:30am to avoid lines.

Q: Is there an official Helvetia Host Hotel?

A: Yes! Courtyard by Marriott Hillsboro has amazing Helvetia packages that include free breakfast!

Q: Are strollers allowed on the course?

A: Unfortunately, our route is not stroller friendly. There are several “choke points” on the course that are too narrow to accommodate strollers.

Q: What are the age group categories?

A: 19 & Under, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, and 80 & better

Q: Are dogs allowed on the course or at the stadium?

Gordon Faber Stadium does not allow dogs on the premises. Dogs are also not allowed on the course. The weather could be very warm so we strongly suggest that you leave your four-legged friends at home for this one.
