About The Hippie Half

The Hippie Half Marathon in Champoeg State Park, Oregon on 13 May 2023 is a race like no other. It’s an event that celebrates the hippie culture of the 60s and 70s while offering runners a unique half marathon experience. The course winds through some of the most scenic parts of Champoeg State Park, taking runners along rolling hills and gentle curves as they make their way to the finish line.

The scenery throughout this race is simply stunning. Starting near St Paul, you’ll find yourself running through lush green meadows with beautiful views of Mount Hood in the distance. As you continue past forested trails, you may even catch a glimpse of deer or elk grazing in nearby fields! Additionally, expect plenty of wildflowers along your journey – these will add color and interest to your run for sure!

Weather-wise, May is typically sunny with temperatures ranging from around 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10 Celsius) during early morning hours up to 75 degrees Fahrenheit (24 Celsius) by mid-afternoon – perfect for running outdoors! Of course there’s always a chance for rain showers so it pays to be prepared just in case!

In terms of crowds at this event – they tend to be quite friendly and supportive; many are dressed up in hippie attire adding even more fun and excitement to proceedings. There’s also live music playing before each start time which helps get everyone energized for their upcoming challenge!

Finally – what makes this half marathon special? Well – it was actually founded by two local trail runners who wanted to create an event that celebrated nature while giving back something meaningful back into our community. That’s why proceeds from every registration go towards local charities helping those less fortunate than us all over Oregon state – something we can all feel proud about supporting!

Overall – if you’re looking for an enjoyable yet challenging half marathon experience then look no further than Hippie Half Marathon held annually at Champoeg State Park on 13th May 2023; its varied route coupled with spectacular natural beauty combined with great vibes make it one not worth missing out on!
