Saturday, October 25, 2014 at the North Bonneville Sports Park
This loop course five mile run/walk starts at the Strawberry Island Trailhead just west of North Bonneville in Washington’s Skamania County. Only about 25 miles east of Camas, this race is closer that you might think and is only $2 for non-CGRC members; free for members. While costumes are not required, they are encouraged. This is a flat course on mainly paved trails; dog (on leash) friendly and runnable with a jog stroller.

(The Marathon is a NEW distance this year!)
Starting at Klickitat School in Klickitat, Wash., this is a great community race on beautiful and challenging trails. Funds raised support the Klickitat Youth and Lyle Activity Center. The marathon is an out-and-back, with the 9a start time selected to minimize trail congestion, and is $60 for pre-registered participants and $70 for day of race. The half marathon, participants of which will be bused to their start, begins at 10a. Pre-register for $30 or day of race for $40. The 5k participants will also be bused to their start location, with a 9:45a start time. The 5k is FREE for CGRC members and only $2 for non-members. Kids 18 and younger can also participate for free.
Look for a full preview coming on Run Oregon for the Klickitat Trail Marathon, Half Marathon and 5k soon.

This is a FREE race for those who bring a donation of non-perishable food, or donation-based; all contributions will be given to the local food bank. With an 8a start, even the master chef will be able to run or walk and still get home in time to get all the goodies in the oven! This is a very laid-back, supportive run/walk. The course is a loop with a short out-and-back dog leg near the half way point. Last year’s race participants gathered more than $200 and hundreds of pounds of food to donate.
