NEW: Chris Hall’s Couch Surfing Challenge
HAVE FUN, RAISE MONEY FOR CHARITY, and MAYBE WIN $500 CASH
Runs from now until September 30th.
In light of the COVID 19 pandemic and strict government mandates on public health and safety, we have come up with a fun alternative to our Half K this year. Welcome to Chris Hall’s Couch Surfing Challenge. Here’s what we do.
Step 1: Make a funny video or take a funny picture of you couch surfing. The funnier, the better.
Step 2: Like The Chris Hall’s Half K page, so you can tag us in the post.
Step 3: Add #couchsurfing to your post so we can easily find your submission.
BONUS: Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, we will donate $5 for the Walk To End Alzheimers for every video submitted (max $500)
In order for your video to be considered for the prize, you need to call out at least 2 people and challenge them to Couch Surf.
The winner will receive a $500 CASH Grand Prize.
Voting will be determined by LIKES and SHARES (Viratlity) and by our committee. Bonus points for staying in the theme of our Half K (donuts, beer, funny outfits, first-place medals, etc.)

Chris Hall’s Half K POSTPONED TO 2021
Participants with “run” (walking is fine) in a Half K (or .31 miles or 1640 feet). You and your friends will check in at 2350 Athens Avenue in Redding, CA.
But .31 miles is a long way, so there is a refreshment station at the halfway point. At the bridge, you will be refreshed with not just a water station, but complimentary mini donuts. Now that you have all your energy reserves filled up, you’ll head back to the finish line.
At the completion of the Half K, all participants get a 1st place medal and are greeted with a complimentary beer from Woody’s Brewery. Racers will also get an event t-shirt as well as the amazingly smug .31 oval sticker for your car.
This year, we’re adding a decathlon with lots of fun activity stations that will live up to the Chris Hall Half K name. There will also be beer and food vendors available for purchase as well as 80’s music for those that want to hang out.
And, yes sir (or ma’am), do we have a great charity. All of the proceeds go to Shasta Dam Kiwanis Food For Kids Program. Every week, they give over 115 kids in need backpacks full of nutritious food. They fill the bags on Thursdays, hand them out on Fridays, and get them back on Mondays. They do this every Friday during the school year for kids who would otherwise not eat. It’s a great program and we’d love your support. Even if you can’t be there, consider our Virtual Participant, where we send you all the SWAG and you can tell everyone you were there!
Here’s what you get:
- Event T: Sure to be your next favorite shirt
- Freshly Made Mini-Donuts at the turn
- Everyone gets a 1st Place Medal
- Free Beer from Woody’s
- Smug .31 Oval Sticker for Car
Yours For Only $20
