It’s a first time event in Central Oregon and it seems to be a big hit according to the registration numbers so far. It’s the Happy Girls Half Marathon. Nothing against the fellas, says Event Coordinator Gina Mills, it's just that sometimes women runners can be intimidated and prefer to enter a gender specific run. Men are still allowed to participate but, "The purpose of this race is to celebrate women and to give women an opportunity to run together and to celebrate healthy lifestyle choices and spend time with their girlfriends and their siblings and their daughters and their mothers." Daughters who are ten and under have their own special category.  "For the Happy Little Girls Run”, which is on Saturday at the Riverbend Park Expo and packet pick up at 1:30 p.m. That's for the three to ten year olds so there are three age appropriate distance a short little dash for the little kids all the way up to a three quarter mile dash for the 8-10 year olds." Over 100 little runners have entered that event and the registration limit for the main event; 1000 runners have already been reached. Money for the even goes to Kids Center in Bend.
