The original, the one and only. This is the one that started it all — it will be back and better than ever on Sunday, Sept. 15th, 2019. It will still include Gorgeous views (of the Columbia River Gorge), waterfalls, a run up to the iconic Vista House, and a Gorgeous Finish Party.
We were all heartbroken as we watched the Eagle Creek fire spread through the Columbia River Gorge in 2017. Restoration continues, but so too does new trail construction! So, we will yet again have a new, new course in 2019. We promise it will more Gorgeous than ever.
Thank you for coming back to the Columbia Gorge to support the communities of the gorge, Friends of the Columbia Gorge, and show our dedication to this magic place!
Teams of up to 6 Gorgeous runners (you can run it with less) divide up 12 legs, covering 60 total miles. The Gorgeous Finish Party offers only the best, with a free full pint of beer (or Humm kombucha), a Gorgeous pint glass, a Gorgeous t-shirt, and a unique Gorgeous medal. AND, we’re proud to once again partner with the Friends of the Columbia Gorge. Because of the work of Friends and those who share their mission and values, the Columbia Gorge is preserved for all of us.
So, what are you waiting for? Round up a friend or two, or five, and register now! Or be really Gorgeous and run the whole relay yourself. Go to www.gorgeousseries to sign up.
Still not sure? We also do FREE monthly pub runs (3 and 5 mile options) to showcase pub partners, get a little training in, and raffle off Gorgeous Prizes afterward. Here is a link to our February Gorgeous Pub Run (Weds. 2/27, 6:30pm) from McMenamins Kennedy School.
See all you Gorgeous Runners soon!
