Herron Half Marathon, 10K & 5K 6/4/17

Herron half logo A-screen WOW!  You all blew us away with your support this year!  We set an all time record of 224 racers in this 6th annual Herron Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K …. but, wait, I didn’t even include the kids’ race totals in that number!  If you add those enthusiastic runners to the total, we were well over 250!

On top of that, we QUADRUPLED the amount of money we raised to build trails in Herron Park and all the way to the summit of Blacktail Mountain (and connecting to the new Lakeside to Blacktail Trail)!  Please check out our sponsor list at the bottom of this page, and stop in to these business and tell them “THANKS” for their support.

I now need your feedback: some folks have asked that I redo the race, including some of the new trails.  Others have said they would like me to keep it the same, so they can compare their times from one year to another.  I will listen to you all, so email me.  You can reach me at brian#runflathead.com (substitute the “#” with “@” – I wrote it that way so I don’t get flooded with spam).

You can view & download maps of the course to remind you of what the route looks like: Half Marathon Race Map and  10K and 5K Race Map. You can also look at maps at the bottom of this page.

RACE RESULTS from the 2017 and past Herron Half Marathon,10k and 5k races can be found at Competitive Timing. Ted and Tanya Van from Lone Pine Photography have provided a link to their website, which includes many pictures (likely one of you, too) that they took. Click HERE to go to their web page.


I couldn’t have done it without all of the great volunteers!  They made everything go amazingly smoothly (at least from my perspective).  The list is really big… I am afraid I will miss someone if I try listing everyone.  So, if you are one of the volunteers who are reading this, please know you are very much appreciated!

Awards Ceremony

I promise I will make it go quicker next year.  Thanks to all of you who stuck around!
