Small Race Preview: 2020 Valentine’s Columbia River Trail Run (The Dalles)

Looking for a flat, fast winter time trial run? The Valentine’s Columbia River Trail Run is the event you’re looking for!  Choose from a 3K, 5K, or 10K on the paved Columbia River Trail, then plan on returning to the trail in about a month for the St. Patty’s Trail Run on the same out and back course to try and beat your time. The top 3 overall male and female runners will receive a medal and the top 3 in each age division will receive ribbons.

This race is a fundraiser for the Colonel Wright Elementary Physical Education program. If you pre-register and order a shirt you’ll also receive free running gloves and socks. What a deal! Support the local PE program and get free socks/gloves! And all District 21 K-5 students can run this race for free. Pre-registration for this race is by mail-in form, so be sure to get your registration taken care of early.
