Huckleberry Half routes

Half Marathon Route: At your own pace, you’ll delight in sights such as a golf course, the Cascade Range, the Salmon River, bridges and natural wildlife—where you might see deer! The Half Marathon route is the same as the 10k except it has an additional six-seven miles of running in the National Forest and crossing the Salmon River twice. This course is considered somewhat challenging with mixed rolling hills. Details here.

10K Route: At just the right speed, you’ll go south on Salmon River Rd. and then take Fairway Ave. while breathing in the exhilarating Cascade Range. Continuing south on Welches Rd., you’ll enjoy the scenery of moss-filled trees and woodsy homes. Finally, you’ll come to Salmon River Rd. to circle back to the start. Details here.

5K Route: This race will take you along some of the beautiful fairways & into the gorgeous neighborhoods of the The Resort at the Mtn. This is an out & back and provides some breathtaking views of the surrounding hills. Details here.

  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    This is a great race with a nice course that is both hilly and well-shaded (although we had gentle rain most of the time -- ideal conditions). The only potential negative is two out-and-back sections, one fairly long. If you want the more varied scenery of a loop or point-to-point, you won't get that, but it's still a lovely course. Parking was nice and close; everything was well signed and easy to find. Instant results were great. All of the volunteers were helpful and encouraging. The only thing I would change is how the raffle is done. Using bib numbers is great, but pull them and write them on a white board. I was somewhere in the back half of the half marathon, meaning that by the time I finished, some numbers had already been called, but I had no idea whether mine was one. I also didn't know when they would call numbers again. Better to just figure out who's there (by crossing the start line with their bib), pull numbers from there, posting the numbers, and periodically encouraging people to check the board. That issue aside, I would definitely run this race again.

    Really is an amazingly beautiful course. Really enjoyed the drive, seeing Mt. Hood. The course ran past a rock face that, one year, had rock climbers climbing up it, which was very cool! Best course I've experienced in the PNW.
