The Sisters 'Better Half' Marathon takes place Saturday, April 28, 2017 at 9 a.m. We hope to make this race as local as possible--highlighting many of the great businesses and services that Sisters has to offer!  Proceeds from this event will benefit the Sisters High School Swim Team.

You may complete a 1/4 Marathon (6.55 miles) or a 1/2 Marathon (13.1 miles) as an individual.  The course is a single, 6.55 mile loop, so 1/4 marathoners complete one loop and 1/2 marathoners complete two loops.  You can also complete the race with a teammate!  Each member will run or walk one loop.  There are three relay options: The 'Better Half' (male/female partners), Female/Female Partners and Male/Male Partners. NEW for this year-overall and age-group winners will receive a Sisters Half trucker hat.

Start/Finish: All events start and finish at Village Green Park in downtown Sisters, Oregon.  All events start at 9 a.m. Spectators will get multiple opportunities to see participants come by the park, so bring your crew to come out and cheer! Circa 1880 will be there serving fresh brewed coffee and cold brew mochas before the start and after the finish-available free to participants and for purchase to spectators as well. Local food and beverages provided by Three Creeks Brewing at the finish--stay and reward yourself for a race well run (or walked!) If you plan to take advantage of the great Three Creeks beer please BRING YOUR ID!
