A thousand runners — and their fans and families — will converge on Hood River the weekend of Oct. 27-28 for the annual Columbia Gorge Marathon.
The race starts at 9 a.m. from the Hatfield West Trailhead (shuttle buses will take runners there, from the Marina Green finish area). Runners will finish anywhere from around 11:30 a.m. on into the afternoon. Half-marathon runners start at the Marina Green at 9:30 a.m., and finish there as well.
If you’re coming to run — or just want to watch — please take care when driving through downtown and along the route of the course. See more details at the event web site.
