This race is all about YOU! Every decision we make has YOU in mind. This is a race designed for everyone from first timers to seasoned half marathoners. It is a picturesque course with some rolling hills. We have reversed the course from last year so the 'big hill' is at mile 2. Once you reach the top be sure to take a moment to look to your left at the beautiful view of the countryside. 

There will be six water stations, four potty-stops, and lots of fans cheering you on along the way.

We are again partnering with BOX, a nonprofit organization founded by women, dedicated to building connections that support women and girls. This year their focus will be on providing hygiene products and clothing needed for the girls and women at Rod’s House. If you are not familiar with the wonderful things happening at Rod's House please check them out: In 2021 we donated $4,100 to the Highland School District, in 2022 we donated $2,000 plus products to Davis High School and this year our goal is to raise $5,000! We hope you can help us help the girls and women at Rod's House.

The swag back will be kick-ass again! We received lots of positive feedback about our swag! This year we are doing something a little different and you will be getting a super soft, hooded sweatshirt! We figure if we have sweatshirts in our swag bags the weather will be nice and hot! You will also get a drink coupon for an adult beverage or a non-alcoholic beverage, a medal, a fun drawstring bag and so much more!

First, second, and third place women and men runners and walkers will receive a flying pig trophy!

If you are not a walker or a runner come for the Finish Line Celebration Party! We are honored to have all our party sponsors returning again this year. The Aphrodisi-YAKs will be entertaining us with their great tunes. Tacos Don Chayo food truck will be serving up their delicious food. Treveri Cellars and Tieton Cider Works have made another generous donation of their fabulous locally-made beverages! We will have games and face painting for the kids! It’s going to be a family fun, all-are-welcome community event you don’t want to miss!

Participant Feedback

To be honest this was one of the best organized races I have done.  The emails prior to the race were extremely detailed, the signage on the course was fantastic, the volunteers were great and the after party was awesome.  My son and wife really enjoyed the scavenger hunt to explore the property. They both want to return and they didn’t even run. The raffle was also a great idea. The only thing that could have been better was the weather. This was a fantastic event and I will be back. -Scott K.

You all did a great job! I never did a marathon or ½ marathon before so I have nothing to compare it to, but I am a picky and well organized person and I’d give you guys an A+. -Dawn W.

I loved the race! My friend and I walked the whole thing. I’ve been to a lot of these and yours was both well organized and fun. There were so many people that cheered for us!  We stayed for tacos, beer, and music. I love the shirt too. -Laura T.

I think the volunteers were great especially the three girls with Snickers.  The course was beautiful.  I was pleased by the quality of the shirts.  I usually don’t keep them as a rule. -Jacqui B.

For starters, this is one of the most organized races I’ve been on, especially for a first time. You guys did absolutely incredible work. -Heather J.
