The run begins at 8am, but plan to arrive by 6:45am and carpool, if possible, since parking will be limited. The bridge closes at 7:30am to prepare for this unique opportunity. Add to the fun and dress up like a Goddess. The best Goddess costume will win a $100 gift card to Portland Running Company. Age group awards will be given to the top three ladies in each age division and the overall winners will receive a hand-made head wreath.
All finishers will receive a Bridge of the Goddess technical shirt, finisher necklace by Runmollyrun and a Bridge of the Goddess carryall. Stick around for the post race Toga Party. There will be food, Rogue beer and the Gabriel Cox Band waiting at Marine Park for the finishers to celebrate. Anyone who has participated in a Run with Paula Event knows they keep the standard high. The courses are fun, the aid stations are well planned, miles are marked and no detail is overlooked in the organizing. A great fall run with a gorgeous setting and a start on the Bridge of the Gods, it’s sure to be memorable.
