Why run Happy Girls Bend?

One of the most beautiful courses you’ll ever experience, the Happy Girls Run brings together women of all ages and running abilities for a day of camaraderie and personal challenge. Grab your bestie and take in the beauty of the Deschutes River as you embark on a tour of Bend that winds through the heart of the Old Mill District, through downtown, along the northern river canyon and finishes in River Bend Park. A mix of trails with some road sections, the course is well-marked with inspiring signs for optimal woman power.

You’ll be well supported with multiple aid stations, medics and helpful event staff to make your day all about you and achieving your personal goals. Half marathoners receive not only a super cute duffle bag, but a one-of-a-kind commemorative necklace, while 5k and 10k runners receive a unique Happy Girls gift and beautiful custom medal.
