Mission Statement

Support our community, our atheletes and The Freshwater Trust! Come and help out at The Holiday Half Marathon and 5K. This is the third year for the event and it continues to grow. Pass out medals to the finishers, support aid stations or cheer on racers as they pass by!

The proceeds of the annual Holiday Half Marathon benefit The Freshwater Trust. The Holiday Half Marathon will provide an opportunity for community members, local businesses and employees, individuals and families 'give back' during the holiday season.


The Holiday Half Marathon : This half-marathon will be held in North Portland, on December 16th, starting and ending at Adidas North America Campus. The fantastic course travels along Willamette Boulevard with views of Forest Park and the river, through the Overlook neighborhood, past the University of Portland campus and turning around at Pier Park underneath the St John's Bridge. Some participants will complete a shorter 5 K course.

Locally owned Foot Traffic , supports our community hosting racing events and donating proceeds to organizations committed to making a difference. You can help make a difference too!

Don your favorite Holiday Attire, enjoy carolers dotting the running course and support local athletes. Interested in active living, healthy communities, environmental stewardship or healthy watersheds? Consider giving back at the Holiday Half Marathon in December and support The Freshwater Trust .

Proceeds from The Holiday Half will help The Freshwater Trust continue its important activities restoring our rivers to protect our freshwater resources. Every year, The Freshwater Trust plants thousands of trees, restores dozens of river miles, keep billions of gallons of water flowing in Oregon streams and facilitates tens of thousands of students in learning about our freshwater resources. www.thefreshwatertrust.org
