Marathon Course

Enjoy the View!

This course is designed to include some of the most spectacular scenery that you’ll ever have an opportunity to see! Part of this route was built nearly 100 years ago as the first highway to navigate the Columbia River Gorge, and it is as impressive today as it was back then.

Shuttles to Start at the Mark O. Hatfield Trail

We will be providing shuttle buses to get competitors to the start at the Mark O. Hatfield Trail head on the Historic Columbia River Highway. The shuttle will pick people up near the finish line and transport them to the start.

There is NO PARKING at the Start. It is DROP OFF ONLY.

Shuttle service will start at 7am at the Hood River Event Site (next to the finish) and continue every 10 minutes up to 8:40am, so please give yourself enough time!
