The Huckleberry Running Festival will return on
Saturday, August 5, 2023
Limited Runners on Course. The scenery is meant to be enjoyed, so we make sure not to over pack the course.
The Huckleberry Half features one of the most beautiful courses in all of the Pacific Northwest through the Mt. Hood National Forest.
Locally owned and operated. The Huckleberry Half was designed and continues to strive to benefit the local community and nonprofits.
Hello From Your New Huckleberry Events Team
As you may have heard, the Huckleberry Half Marathon has come under a new ownership group and will now be named The Huckleberry Running Festival. We owe a tremendous amount of gratitude to our previous Race Director, Brady Mordhorst, for the terrific work he did in managing this fantastic event. We fully appreciate its great history and understand the responsibility of carrying it forward well.
When the opportunity to manage this event came about, we jumped at the chance to be a part of what we consider to be the most beautiful, fun, and runner-friendly event in the Pacific Northwest.
We are a group of local running/fitness enthusiasts who have been born, raised, and now live in the greater Portland metro area. We have diverse professional backgrounds but the thing that makes us so excited about this event is our shared passion for running, the outdoors, and bringing people together for incredible experiences. We are committed to maintaining the outstanding legacy and spirit of the Huckleberry Half while also finding creative ways to improve it for all of you.
We appreciate your patience and support over these past couple of years as we've prepared for 2023. We look forward to getting to know each and every one of you and putting on the best race experience possible.
Please reach out with any questions or comments - Your feedback is invaluable to us.
Mike, Todd, Eric, & Dan
