HERRON HALF MARATHON | 10K | 5K
It’s time to gear up again for the 8th annual leg burning show case of the beautiful Herron Park and Foy’s to Blacktail Trail system! Brace yourself for another gorgeous display of wild flowers and views of the Flathead Valley (if you choose the 10k or 1/2 marathon race)! This year’s race will be June 9th, 2019. The races will be on the same courses as in 2018, given how well they were received last year. Bring your kiddos, too, for the ~1 km kid’s race, so they can be inspired to join you in the future!

Race Bibs and Packets
Race bibs can be picked up starting at 7:30 a.m. on race day. Packets, including give aways from sponsors will be handed out to racers as they complete the race.
At 11:30 am, we will provide an informal kids’ race for those under the age of 13. There is no charge for this race. Bibs will be provided but there will be no official timing. We will recognize the top 3 racers of each gender. Kids will get stickers with the Herron Half Logo as their “swag” for completing the race.
Parking is available in the main Herron parking lot, with Dick Lauer and helpers guiding you to your spot in order to optimize the space we have. Additional parking is available in the stable parking lot, past the main Herron lot on the right side. Please look for the bright color vests of volunteers assisting with parking. We are expecting the same large number of participants this year, which filled all parking areas, so PLEASE CARPOOL!
We can’t do it without all of the great volunteers! Please contact Brian Miller, Race Director at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would be willing to help with any of the many tasks, such as staffing an aide station, directing cars toward parking options, helping with registration, giving out awards, marking the course ahead of time, directing racers at tricky intersections, or taking down the course afterwards.
We’ll make it quick, but we also want to give you overall and age group winners your time in the spotlight. In addition, we will give away lots of cool stuff donated by our sponsors by random drawing to race participants sticking around to the end of the awards ceremony. This will be held after the kids’ race.
Don't forget to support the sponsors who helped the 2018 race with monetary support and/or in-kind donations:It
