Hoodoo running race will benefit Kiwanis programs

The Kiwanis Club of Sisters is excited about the return of the Hoodoo Challenge: Run to the Top half-marathon and five-kilometer race scheduled for Saturday, July 24.

The event, in its fifth year, did not take place in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Both races finish at the top of Hoodoo, a change from previous years when the 5K did not go up the mountain.

The half-marathon course traverses forested trails that include a scenic view from the top of Potato Hill, while the 5K run and walk will begin in the Hoodoo parking lot before heading up the hill.

Following completion of the races, participants will walk back down the mountain for a hosted lunch and the awards ceremony. In addition, all entrants will receive a pair of Dri-Fit socks printed with a race logo.

T-shirts and trucker hats will also be available for sale. The top male and female finishers of the half-marathon will receive a season pass for Hoodoo.

All proceeds of the race will go to fund charitable work done by Kiwanis Club of Sisters.
