review of 2016 Columbia Gorge Marathon.   

5 / 5 Stars

Review

Love the small town feel. Sights during the run were the best I've seen in over 20 marathons. Really tough stretch from mile 18-21 (all up).

Race Tips

Patience. Lots of downhill and uphills in the beginning can get you anxious. Just race to enjoy the sights in this one.
