The Happy Girls Run in Sisters, Oregon is happening Nov. 7, 2020!

One of Oregon’s favorite races returns to Sisters with an all new half marathon course!

In a time when most races have been canceled, we are super fortunate to have the green light to host this awesome event! After successfully putting on the Haulin’ Aspen Run in Bend, Lay It Out Events has become a name that is synonymous with safe and healthy running events in the era of COVID-19.

Challenge yourself to the half marathon and enjoy beautiful single track, fast, flowy descents and amazing views of the Cascades on the Peterson Ridge trail system just outside Sisters (all new course for 2020!) or have fun with the 5K which tours the scenic western-themed town. Both races start and finish at the beautiful FivePine Resort, where you’ll be welcomed by crisp mountain air and majestic Ponderosa pines.

Please know that we are first and foremost committed to each and every runner’s health and safety during these uncertain times. To ease all crowding, the race features four staggered starts, a fully chip-timed race (hit the starting line when the coast is clear!) an extensive outdoor area for socially distancing and some innovative ways to make sure everyone is warm and fed and HAPPY at the finish area. We think you’ll love what we’ve done to support you on this amazing memorable day!

Find out more about our safe practices on our FAQ page.

As many of you know –

The half marathon race is limited to 500 runners, so don’t get left behind (the race always sells out)!

And, for those runners who may not be able to travel to Sisters this year, we are offering a Virtual Happy Girls Race. Keep connected and supported as you run your race on your own schedule and in the comfort of your own surroundings. We love our extended Happy Girls Running Community!!.
