Whats been going on:
What happened today at the Turkey Trot is what many RD's hope to see. Everyone enjoying themselves and a hard fought race up front. The overall winner broke a record by 1 sec. that has been standing since 2008 and was set by todays 2nd place finisher who was less than a second behind. Great race finish guys. The event raised $210 and hundreds of pounds of food for our local food-bank. Also thanks to all the Sponsors and Volunteers. Awesome! Click here for results.
Klickitat Trail 1/2 Marathon and 5K is in the books. Click here for results.

On April 20, CGRC hosted a Run for Boston group run/walk. Watching the tragic events unfold 3000 miles away, we felt helpless, angry and sad. Like people everywhere, we wanted to show support the best way we knew how: lacing up our running shoes. We wanted to tell the world that we stand with Boston and are thinking about all of those impacted. We are proud to send the $200 we collected on behalf of the Columbia Gorge Running Club to One Fund Boston to benefit the people most affected by the tragic events.
