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.   

 Goddess Starting Line!
