Back for the 2nd year is one of the coolest half marathon runs you will find anywhere, literally!
The Bridge of the Gods Half Marathon and 10K will start on the Washington side of the river taking runners across the exciting and scenic Bridge of the Gods. Amazing views directly under foot await competitors and are sure to get the blood pumping before reaching your first mile.
From the bridge the run will connect with the Historic Columbia River Highway State Park Trail and head west towards Dodson. Runners will keep cool during the hot August weather by crossing 4 bridges and creeks as well as running under a thick shaded canopy of old growth forest.
The turn around will be located at just west of the brand new section of trail at Moffett Creek and take runners back to Cascade Locks. After a short sprint through town runners will head into Marine Park were the sternwheeler is located and across the bridge that spans the historic locks to finish on Thunder Island. At the finish will be a beer garden, music and expo transforming the small Thunder Island into a rocking big party right in the middle of the Columbia River.
