Helvetia Half for A Hamburger

And the winner is....Stefanie Carulli! Email me at for your FREE ENTRY code!! CONGRATS! 

Good, better, best.  Never let it rest until your good is better and better is best.

Did you hear the news!? NUUN is partnering with Better Series to be the official on course hydration product. 

On June 7th, I will be toeing the start line of the Helvetia Half, the race where you "Leave The City Behind," and YOU can be there with me for FREE, courtesy of NUUN and Better Series.

The scenic course with breathtaking views starts and ends at Hillsboro ballpark, after winding its way through Washington County and the pasturelands of northwest Oregon.

In addition to NUUN being on the course, PACE GROUPS, BREATH TAKING SCENERY, and being voted BEST HALF MARATHON in the northwest, Helvetia half offers a grand finish, with...wait for it...a famous Helvetia Tavern Burger.  It doesn't get any better than celebrating a victory and fueling #runger with an award winning hamburger. 

NUUN, me, award winning course, and THE BEST burger in town...this is one race you won't want to miss.

ENTER TO WIN A FREE ENTRY by leaving a comment below with how you go about picking which races to run {location, time of year, course, etc}. Winner will be chosen Thursday May 8th! 


  1. Holly, to bad I live on the other side of the country. This sounds like an amazing race. Glad I was able to catch up on your blog after a bit of a reading hiatus.

  2. Helvetia is a fun race!! I don't want to win but I will answer the question! :) I guess it depends on lots of things! I have decided on a list of races that I want to do (and continue to add on to it) and I try to plan as many as I can. Depending on who I would be able to go with or who wants to train for what. Really I have no idea how to answer this. I just kind of decide!! :) Can we get together when you come to town for the race?!

  3. I pick races based on when / where the race is, entry fee, how I'm feeling and how many races I've already done or signed up to do. :D

  4. I have REALLY been wanting to run Helvetia Half! I have heard its a beautiful yet challenging course. This mama is always up for a challenge!! I typically choose a race based on:
    1. price (with two children to take care of on one income price is a concern)
    2. Charity/fund raising. I love helping others and I get to do what I love to support the cause, RUN!
    3. location (I enjoy a scenic run) I'm a nature girl so I love to see greenery but do enjoy an urban run and what it has to offer also.
    4. I will run any time of the year! Run rain. Run sun.
    Thank you for this opportunity!

    1. Winner Winner!!! Congratulations! Please email me at for your FREE ENTRY code!

  5. Helvetia Half is one amazing race! On June 15th I'll be 30 and am hoping to log one last race in my 20's! Thanks for the consideration! #runlove
