Both the 5k and 10k courses will bring you down and along the Historic Columbia River Hwy Trail (which was also used during the Bridge of The Gods course), which is a paved path that, according to the race website, brings participants “THROUGH A SCENIC CANOPY OF MOSS COVERED TREES. VIEWS OF THE MIGHTY COLUMBIA RIVER, WILDFLOWERS, FERNS, SINGING BIRDS, MOSS COVERED ROCK WALLS AND EVEN A TUNNEL.” There are several hills involved, however, the majority of them are gradual. Fortunately, the stunning views of the Columbia River are a helpful distraction.The 10k course will bring runners down to the Eagle Creek Fish Hatchery, where you will turn around to head back toward Cascade Locks to accept your victory. Both the 5k and 10k turn-around points will be well marked, so have no fear of running farther than you anticipated on race day!
So take a nice, beautiful trip out to Cascade Locks on May 2nd for this beautiful race, and regardless of whether it rains on you or not, enjoy every minute.
