The following is information from the 2014 race.  For those of you who might be interested in the race next year, we will post updates as soon as we have decided details, but for now we will keep this information on the site.

Herron Half & 10K Map  as of the past 3 years.

Registration Fees:

Early Registration: $45 for 1/2 marathon, $35 for 10K
Race Day Registration goes up $10 ($55 for 1/2 marathon, $45 for 10K)

All racers will be required to carry their own bottle in order to utilize water at aid stations.  Cups will be available for Hammer Heed only.


Parking is available in the main Herron parking lot.  Additional parking is available in the stable parking lot, past the main Herron lot on the right side.  If you choose to park along the road, please park off the shoulder to allow for cars to pass on Foys Lake Road.


We are in need of volunteers to run aid stations, sweep the course, the registration table, etc.  Volunteers must arrive no later than 8:15AM.  Please be prepared for all weather conditions. Please bring a water bottle.  If you are interested in volunteering please contact jamie@runflathead.com.

Aid Stations, Course Guidelines & Restrooms
There will be two aid stations on the courses.  One will be located close to the finish where half marathoners will run by between loops 1, 2, and 3.  The other will be at the kiosk at the top of the family trail.  We might have a third further up on the first loop near a key trail junction.  Hammer Nutrition is supplying Heed and we will provide water.  We request that you provide your own bottle because we might not have enough cups. The only restroom is located next to the parking lot.

Volunteers will cheer you on and help direct you at a few of the major intersections during the race.  The course will be clearly marked with signs and flagging. Any participants running slower than 15-minute miles may find aid stations and intersections vacant of volunteers!  If you stop without finishing the race then you need to check in with a volunteer or race official before leaving.  Otherwise, we’ll waste unnecessary time looking for you!

Age Divisions
10-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60 +

Child Participation
Children are encouraged to participate. Children under the age of 16 years old must have a parent or guardian at the race.  Children under the age of 13 must have an adult running the race with them.

Dog Participation
Dogs will NOT be allowed to participate. Much of the course is on single track and having dogs on the trail can make it challenging to pass.


If you have recommendations on how we can make the race better, please e-mail Jamie Lynn: jamie@runflathead.com or Brian Miller: brian@runflathead.com.
