Coming October 26, 2014. Gorgeous fall colors, waterfalls, and amazing vistas. That’s what you’ll see during the Columbia Gorge Marathon! The course follows Oregon’s historic Columbia River Highway, the first planned scenic roadway in the United States and listed as a National Historic Landmark. This is the perfect time of year to enjoy the marathon or half marathon, and walkers are welcome as well, as long as you finish in 6 hours. Expect plenty of aid stations about every 3 miles with at least water and Gatorade, and some will also have fruit, gels, and gummy bears. Finish line festivities include loads of yummy food, beer, hot cider, and awards. As they say, “The most scenic marathon in the country”.
