Huckalicious, we have Bigfoot here!!

If you love to run and admire Oregon’s natural beauty, you won’t ever want to miss the 2015 Huckleberry Half marathon and 10K! A quintessential Mt. Hood experience.  The route is mostly a large loop on all-paved flat and rolling hills. Six miles of the half marathon leads runners beyond the border of the National Forest road to the turnaround at the Green Canyon trailhead—with scenery of the Salmon River, campground and bridge all along.  


If you’ve wanted to explore the Mt. Hood area up close, you’re off to a running start here!


Only a limited number of participants will be accepted, so sign up quickly to save your spot! All participants receive a custom tote, free beer coupon, and free Bigfoot photos!  Half marathon and 10k runners recieve the custom L'il Bigfoot finishers medal made in California of reclaimed redwood. 


Our runners love this course!  Please check us out on Facebook:



At just the right speed, you’ll go south on Salmon River Rd. and then take Fairway Ave. while breathing in the exhilarating Cascade Range. Continuing south on Welches Rd., you’ll enjoy the scenery of moss-filled trees and woodsy homes. Finally, you’ll come to Salmon River Rd. to circle back to the start.

Half Marathon

At your own pace, you’ll delight in sights such as a golf course, the Cascade Range, the Salmon River, bridges and natural wildlife—where you might see deer!  The Half Marathon route is the same as the 10k except it has an additional six-seven miles of running in the National Forest and crossing the Salmon River twice.
