Bridge of the Goddess Half Marathon | 10K & 5K Is Going Virtual!
September 10th, 2020 UPDATE:
Due to air quality issues in and around PDX, The Bridge of the Goddess 2020 Virtual Event has been extended through Saturday, September 19th.
RunWithPaula Events is committed to joining the efforts to reduce the spread of the coronavirus and to ensure the health of our runners, walkers and host communities. Although we cannot gather together in one large group, we want to encourage you to take a trip to Cascade Locks on your own or with a friend (using proper social distancing rules and guidelines) to experience the amazing sights of the area. If you cannot make it to the Gorge, you can upload your race results from Anywhere, U.S.A.
Did you know that the Columbia River Gorge is now OPEN to the public? We want you to go experience the Gorge!! You can use our official course map between 9/1-9/19 or use your own course. If you choose to use our official course, please make sure to obey all traffic and safety laws and of course keep 6 feet from one another. Enjoy the amazing view from the Bridge of the Gods and the paved bike trail along the Columbia River Highway. Be sure to reward yourself with an ice cream cone from the world-famous Eastwind Drive-In. Eastwind can be found right in the heart of Cascade Locks! Delicious!
