Easy scenic drive from Portland or Hood River.  Come see the amazing Columbia River Gorge!

New in 2014, Bridge of the Goddess Half Marathon and 10K won't dissappoint!  We will begin in the town of Cascade Locks, OR on the  Bridge of the Gods.  Once we cross The Bridge of the Gods we will make our way onto the Historic Columbia River Highway Trail for an out and back. This course is challenging and amazingly beautiful, well-supported and safe from traffic. A great training run or walk for a fall marathon.  Ferns, moss-covered rocks, waterfalls and delicate, shaded wildflowers flank the paved trail.path Several U.S. Forest Service trails intersect this segment of the trail including the Pacific Crest Trail. Note: This segment has a staircase about 3 miles west of Cascade Locks.  The stairs are a part of our course so be prepared to take these steps going out and coming back. This historical trail is where motorists on old U.S. Highway 30 once crept around curves high along the cliffs of the Columbia River Gorge. This trail is amazingly beautiful and a albeit a bit hilly in places the incline most likely won't be what stops you, it will be the views.   Upon your return to Cascade Locks you will finish in Marine Park where the finish line festivities will begin with both food, beer and music.  Celebrate your adventure with the Goddesses along the shores of the beautiful Columbia River - nothing like it!

What a starting line!!  You will park at Marine Park in Cascade Locks, OR and walk a half mile to the center of the Bridge of the Gods.  The Bridge of the Gods will be closed at 7:15am for staging and photo opportunities so arrive early and enjoy the scenery! You don't want to arrive late and not be able to drive into Cascade Locks because of the bridge closure.  Plan to arrive by 6:45am and please carpool if you can.   

Please bring your RACE# to packet pick up.  RACE#'s can be found here on the Race Confirmation Links.  If you would like to transfer your distance please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. - thank you.

The Course:

Begin at Rogue Ales and Spirits in Newport, Oregon. This course will take you along the bay, through the forest and onto the beach path in South Beach Park. The course is a double loop course.  Once for the 10K and twice for the half marathon.  Friends and family can watch you pass and cheer you on after the first 10K loop.  Starting under the bridge at Rogue you run past the Aquarium and along the bay until you hit Leeks Road where you turn uphill and hit the trail portion of the race. The trail portion is beautiful and scenic and reminds me of Leif Erickson Trail in Portland.  This trail takes you uphill for about one mile.  Not extreme but you will feel it.  After you hit the pavement at the water treatment center you get a nice downhill to Hwy 101.  Traffic will be stopped for you to cross Hwy 101 and turn into South Beach State Park where you will run until you reach the one mile path that parallels the ocean. At the end of this path you will hit the Jetty and run west for a short out and back on the Jetty Road and then head home to the bridge.  If you are running the half marathon you get to do this all again and boy is it even better the second time around.  It never gets old, this course offers so many scenic views and points you won't be sorry you did it twice.  The after party is at Rogue where we will enjoy the best beer in the universe and feast on Mo's Famous Clam Chowder. The Ben Rice Band will be playing so get ready to move your feet!  This after party all happens in the Rogue Brewery and on the shore line of Newport Bay!!  Don't want to miss this one!  A special thank you to WILDER for allowing us to use private forested land as part of our course.  Thank you Wilder!
