Chris Hall’s Half K September 25th, 2021 POSTPONED
NOTICE: Due to the recent surge in Covid cases, we have decided to postpone our event until Spring.
Do you want to be part of one of the most talked-about events Redding has ever seen?
Participants NOT RUN in a Half K (or .31 miles or 1640 feet). You and your friends will check in at 56 Quartz Hill in Redding, CA (Lake Redding Pavilion).
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 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 one of several charities and you get to choose where your money goes. Our charities for 2021 are:
Shasta Lake Kiwanis (Backpack Program)
One Safe Place
Shasta Youth Options
Pathways to Hope for Children

Special Thanks to Our Committee:
Chris Hall, Event Creator and Cheif Bottle Washer
Chris Hall was born and raised in Redding, CA and has a real heart for his community. Although Chris has competed athletically and kept fitness a priority, he has never had any desire to do a 5k run. When he heard about the idea for a Half K, he immediately fell in love with the idea. Chris spends countless hours in his community, thinking of fun and new ideas for charitable endeavors. He is no stranger to fundraising. He once owned a company that put on alumni football games. Through the 5 years of doing that, he was able to help schools and charities raise well over $400,000. His goal is for this event to beat that event over the next 5 years. Help Chris spread the word. We’ve got a lot of great charities we’re working with. When not fundraising, Chris spends his time helping in other ways. He is a full-time financial advisor in Redding, CA, and also coaches many local youth sports.
Robert Balke, Fundraising God and Community Champion
Robert Balke is a small-town boy at heart, with big city dreams. He grew up in McKinleyville, CA with his parents and two younger siblings. At a young age, Robert learned the value of hard work and helping others. In 2007, Robert moved to the Redding area, creating a life in the local community with his four children and his incredible fiancé, Brittney. After living in the community and becoming more familiar with the Redding and Anderson areas, Robert felt as though something was missing and HE wanted to do more…“The communities needed an outlet to reach out to when they needed help. An outlet that would never limit the number of people they would help.” So, with those big-city dreams and the grit of a small-town boy, in October 2017, Robert founded the grassroots volunteer group of United Shasta. He has joined our team from Day 1 and has been integral in pushing the Half K to new limits.
NOTE: Food and Beverage is provided for sale. It is not included in the Entry Fee. All Beverage sales will go 100% to the charity and a portion of the food sales will go to charity. So, make sure to hang out and enjoy what is going to be a beautiful day!
