Plan for 2021

We have opened registration for Run for the Hills for 2021 as a waitlist on UltraSignup.

Right now, we hope to hold the 2021 Run for the Hills event in person, but as yet, it remains unclear whether conditions will allow us to hold a live event.

Once we know for certain whether we can hold a live event we will unpause registration processing and process your race registration if you sign up.

If we are unable to hold a live event, we will email you with options for your registration.

In case conditions do not allow a live event, we hope to hold a virtual event similar to 2020. This may also provide the opportunity for individuals to choose how they want to participate (in-person or virtual).

Know that if we are able to stage a live race, this will look much different than in the past with a number of protocols in place in light of COVID-19.

We appreciate all the community support for this event and everyone's patience as we try to anticipate conditions in June 2021.

Sunday June 6, 2021

Where

The 15th annual Run for the Hills begins and ends at the south parking lot of Benton County Fairgrounds, 110 SW 53rd St., Corvallis, OR.


Courses

30k course

Course map

The 30k trail course uses the entire 8k course but adds a trip up to Fitton Green Natural Area for some awesome views, incorporating the Mulkey Ridge connector trail each way. The course will be challenging due to the hills, but the views and nice trails will make your work quite worth the effort.

8k course

Course map

The scenic 8k trail run consists of challenging hills and flat stretches in Bald Hill Park, with about 1.4 miles of paved path and 3.6 miles of dirt trails. There may be a surprise musical interlude at the top of the hill. Keep your ears open. There will be two aid stations.

2 mile & 1/4 mile kids courses

 

The noncompetitive 2mi run/walk is almost entirely on paved paths, 'cept for the last little bit across the gravel parking lot to the finish.
The ¼ mile kids run begins on the bike path and continues across the gravel parking lot to the finish.
