START/FINISH AT THE KLIEVER ARMORY

The Hop Hop Half, 10K, & 5K will hold it’s pre and post-event festivities INSIDE the Kliever Armory on NE 33rd Ave. Race parking and start/finish locations remain the same at the neighboring Port of Portland lots, but we now have a fantastic indoor finish venue in the armory! Click here for a map on how to get to the Kliever Armory.

COURSE DESCRIPTIONS:

All three races will be chip timed and the all three race will be a USATF certified courses! . All courses are VERY flat and fast and are equally great for someone interested in setting a PR or for for beginners looking to complete their first half! The 5K and 10K also head onto the Marine Drive bike path before returning to the start/finish area! TIME LIMITS: The races are all open to walkers and runners, but the half marathon has a time limit of 4 hours for safety and security with police and street closures. We will keep the finish line open for as long as necessary, but usually the finish party starts to wrap up and consolidate around 11:30 given the limited amount of participants finishing after that point. However, our staff will ALWAYS have medals, mimosas, food, beer, and lots of cheers, awaiting you regardless of your finish time!

Half Marathon

This extremely flat course starts on NE 33rd Ave. and takes participants south on 33rd for one mile before heading back North towards Marine Drive. Participants are then treated to over 10 miles of flat, smooth bike path with gorgeous views of Mt. Hood and the mighty Columbia River. The course follows an out and back format on the Marine Drive Bike path, with the turnaround right at the I-205 bridge. Participants then finish the course by reentering NE 33rd Ave. and finishing where they started. USATF CERTIFICATION NUMBER: OR13003LB

10K

The 10K course takes participants out and back past Riverside Country Club and then returns past the start/finish area for about 1.5 miles along the Marine Drive bike path before returning to the start/finish area. The 10k is also chip timed and is professionally and accurately measured to ensure an excellent race experience.

5K

The 5K course takes participants out and back north on 33rd and up onto the Marine Drive bike before finishing at the same location as the half marathon in front of the Kliever Armory. The 5K is also chip timed and is professionally and accurately measured to ensure an excellent race experience.

USATF Certified and Chip-timed Half

The Half Marathon course is always certified and professionally chip timed! 5K and 10K courses will be professionally chip-timed and ACCURATELY measured (always) but not a USATF certified course.

AID STATIONS

There will be 5 total aid stations along the half marathon course serving electrolyte and gels at each! There will also be restrooms at each stop.

Nuun will be the electrolyte choice on course and Clif Shots will be our gels on course. Pick up either one at any Foot Traffic location to test them out before the event!

All races will also feature at least one PEEPS AID STATION!

SPONSOR HOTEL:
McMENAMINS KENNEDY SCHOOL!

Located only about 2 miles from the race start, Kennedy School is one of the closest hotel options for the race! It’s a huge bonus that it’s one of the most fun and creative hotels you’ll ever find! Read below for more fun info about Kennedy School!Remember when the worst thing you could imagine was being kept after class? My, how things have changed! At Kennedy School, you’ll never want to leave. Here you can have a pint in a classroom, enjoy an aged whiskey and a cigar in detention, enjoy a movie in the old auditorium…. The possibilities here are endless. (Just don’t run in the hallways, please. You might spill your beer.)

Since its 1915 opening, this historic elementary school has been a beloved fixture of its Northeast Portland neighborhood. McMenamins renovated the once-abandoned scholastic gem and turned it into Portland’s most unique hotel. Here you’ll find 57 comfy guestrooms with private baths and telephones (some fashioned from former classrooms complete with original chalkboards and cloakrooms – others with an author’s theme), a restaurant, multiple small bars, a movie theater, soaking pool, gift shop and a brewery (just wait until the principal hears about this!). Extensive original artwork and historical photographs cover the walls, ceilings, doorways and hallways.

For neighborhood residents, out-of-town guests and business travelers, Kennedy School is a memorable and comfortable place to gather. The hotel is located minutes from Portland International Airport as well as to shopping in downtown Portland.

Kennedy School allows pets at the tables in front of the hotel, served by the Courtyard Restaurant, and in hotel rooms for a $15 fee.

DIRECTIONS/PARKING

Race venue is at the Kliever Armory. Parking is in the lots SURROUNDING the armory and not the armory itself. We have provided multiple links from all sorts of directions around Portland. If one of these doesn’t fit your needs, you can easily type in your own address and still use the destination coordinates listed on google maps to get you to the start line! We also listed the recommended routes (although all routes are very similar), so you can follow those if you would like. See you soon!

BAG CHECK

Yes, there is an Easter Bunny! And YES, there IS a bag check! Use the bag check tag on your bib and zip or tape it to your own bag to save on waste or simply put your bib number on your own bag with a big piece of tape and you can hand it right over! Forgot your bag? No worries, we’ll still have some extra plastic bags for ya. Please, only drop your bag once though so we only have to find it once after the race. 😉

CARPOOLING & PARKING

There are three main lots surrounding the venue and we do an EXCELLENT job getting nearly 2,000 participants and spectators parked and ready for the race within 45 short minutes. BUT…you can help! Please please please plan to carpool and rideshare. When you drop off, please don’t park in front of other cars and “kiss and drop” even for 30 seconds. If 400 cars wait 30 seconds to kiss and drop, we end up with a huge line. Help make race morning smooth and efficient and GREEN!
