Event Details


The Sisters Hop Fest Half Marathon & 5k takes place Saturday, September 28, 2019 at 8 a.m. We hope to make this race as local as possible, highlighting some of the great businesses and services that Sisters has to offer! Proceeds from this event will benefit the Sisters High School Swim Team.

The Sisters Hop Fest Half starts and finishes at Three Creeks Brewing Production Facility on Barclay Dr. in Sisters's industrial park at 8 a.m. The course is a single 13.1 mile loop, taking advantage of rural paved and dirt county and forest service roads north of town. Road shoes work well on this course. Spectators are welcome to drive all of the course except the northern-most part from miles 5-8, so bring your crew to come out and cheer (just please be aware of residents and other motorists, and, of course, runners)! The 5k will start on Sun Ranch Dr, about 1/4 mile north of the 1/2 marathon start, at 8:10 a.m. and will be mostly flat on a mix of paved and dirt roads.

Packet Pick-up and In-Person Registration:
Friday, Sept 27, 4-6 p.m. at Sisters Athletic Club, 1001 E Desperado Trail, Sisters
Saturday, Sept 28, 6:45 - 7:45 a.m. at Three Creeks Brewing Production Facility, 265 Barclay Dr, Sisters

Post-Race: Be sure to pick up your finishers award and pint glass as you finish and enjoy a tasty beer, or non-alcoholic beverage, courtesy of Three Creeks Brewing Co, as well as some tasty snacks. Then head back to the Production Facility in the afternoon and enjoy the 10th-annual Sisters Fresh Hop Fest, complete with fresh hopped brews from 24 of Oregon's finest breweries! If you plan to take advantage of the great Three Creeks beer at the finish or by attending the Fresh Hop Fest, please BRING YOUR ID!

Refunds: No refunds, transfers to other runners, or transfers to other years. If you cannot run for any reason, please know your entry is going to a good cause. It’s a donation to the Sisters High School Swim Team. They thank you for your support.

Weather: Fall in Central Oregon is typically pretty nice, but we could get a cold and/or rainy day, or a hot one. Expect to wear layers and be prepared for anything. You will be able to drop gear at aid stations.

Music / Strollers / Dogs: Music players are allowed, but please run with only one earbud in, be aware of other runners and traffic, and use general caution, as the course is open to traffic. Strollers are allowed but not recommended, as part of the course is on semi-rocky forest service roads. Dogs are not allowed (check out the Peterson Ridge Rumble in April for a dog-friendly trail race!).
