One of Oregon’s Only February Half Marathons – Heart Breaker Half – Opens Registration

Registration is now open for one of Oregon’s only half marathons – the Heart Breaker Half – slated for February 16, 2014 in Hillsboro, OR.

This event is a fantastic and fun-filled post-Valentine’s Day celebration, with all kinds of activities, the Sports & Fitness Expo, food, Deschutes Brewery beer and other beverages. The Sports & Fitness Expo will host some wonderful Valentine’s Weekend treats from vendors like Foot Traffic, Sweet Spot Skirts, Chics Coffee and more… The Ben Rice Band will provide live music and a heartwarming time will be had by all, spent with friends, family and loved ones.

The Heart Breaker Half-Marathon, with 5K and 10K Run/Walks, will take place Sunday, February 16 at Liberty High School in Hillsboro. This venue offers an ideal – indoor -experience for our participants. (Read: warm and dry!) Liberty High School is located just off of Highway 26 in Hillsboro, OR, only 15 minutes west of downtown Portland, with convenient free parking just steps away from day-of-race registration and the race start lines.

The course is held on beautiful, scenic country roads, winding through gently rolling farmland. There are no train crossings to contend with during the run, and for the walking community there is no time limit! Those participating in the half-marathon will get to quicken their pulse on “Heartbreak Hill” – where all will receive a timed, one-mile split to see who races through the mile the quickest, with top performers receiving special prizes. Everyone is timed and scored as an individual.
