Event description

Description

Get in the holiday spirit and bookend your race season with Portland's favorite winter Half Marathon, 5K, and new 10K in December! All races start and finish at the beautiful Daimler Trucks North America campus on Swan Island and feature carolers and cookies along the course! The 5K boasts a completely flat course along the Willamette waterfront and around their campus and the 10K and half courses also feature a waterfront loop to start and then a fun and scenic North Portland out and back course and a fast downhill finish.

These are one-of-a-kind courses that are the only ones that feature beautiful North Portland, so you can be sure you're getting an amazing un-matched event, full of fantastic features and sights. The Historic St. John's Bridge, the beautiful University of Portland campus, bike path along the Willamette River, and panoramic views of Downtown Portland from the bluff of Willamette Blvd. are just a few of the highlights awaiting you!

GINGERBREAD COOKIE STATIONS!

You heard right! All races will feature a top secret (OK, not so secret) gingerbread cookie aid station so you can experience a little holiday cheer even during the toughest miles.

POST RACE PARTY and FREDDI THE YETI PHOTOS!

Freddi the Yeti--in the flesh...errr FUR!-- will be awaiting you at the finish line for selfies, dance offs, and hugs! After you finish, treat yourself to a seasonal craft beer, hearty holiday soup, hot chocolate, snacks and samples and more! You want holiday music? You get LOTS of Holiday music all morning long! With a combination of carolers along the course and DJ's spinning holiday beats at the finish, you're sure to get your fill of festive cheer this December.

If you're not excited about Christmas, Hanukkah, and every other Holiday festivity after this race, then you just might be the Grinch!

IMPORTANT! REFUND and INCLEMENT WEATHER CANCELLATION POLICY:

Due to the nature of a large, sold-out event (similar to a concert), there are absolutely NO REFUNDS and NO DEFERRALS from year to year for this race, NO exceptions. However, TRANSFER options from participant to participant and to different distances (ie. half to 5K) are available and are free until bibs are assembled the week prior to the race--after which point there is a $10 rechip/bib fee. We are one of the few races that allow these kinds of transfers all the way up until race day in order to allow the maximum amount of people to enjoy the race each year!

INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY: There will absolutely be no direct refunds, EVEN in the account of a race postponement or ultimate cancellation due to weather. This race will occur in many cold weather situations, however, if the event is unable to occur due to inclement weather (ie. any snow or ice that prevents the police from monitoring the course), there will be no refunds. The City of Porltand and the police ultimately decide when an event is possible or not. HOWEVER, we will offer a voucher for $25 for half marathon participants and $15 for 5K or $20 for 10K participants for a future Holiday Half +10K+ 5K event up to TWO years after the event! In addition, you will still receive your shirt, commemorative bib, and medals as well (these all must be ordered over a month in advance, so we can't cancel these items). Weather permitting, we will also attempt to create a free replacement party and group run at one of the Foot Traffic stores within two weeks after the race! Again, there will absolutely be no direct refunds, even in the account of a postponement or cancellation. There are significant costs, charitable contributions, staffing, facility and rental commitments, etc... that are associated with an event that cannot be recouped.
