Runners in the 2017 3K event | Paul Carson Photography

The annual Riverhawk Run and Walk in The Dalles is coming up on Saturday, August 31st. This event features 1K, 3K, or 5K distances to choose from, starting and finishing at Sorosis Park. The course is along a bark chip trail around the park then loops around the Columbia Gorge Community College (on pavement) with some rolling hills. This course is what the high school cross country athletes run in the fall!

There will be awards to the top 3 finishers in each age division in each of the distances. Registrations are accepted until August 29th and for only $10, it’s a great little run in the Gorge!
