This is the one that started it all.  Running 60 miles from outside Cascade Locks and into the heart of Portland, the Gorgeous Relay is truly Gorgeous.  Experience the Historic Columbia River Highway on its 100th Anniversary as it winds past waterfalls, creeks and forests.  With views of the Columbia Gorge, the Columbia and Willamette Rivers and Historic Vista House at Crown Point, and finishing again at Base Camp Brewing Company, this will be the most gorgeous relay you’ve ever run!

After racing Cascade Lakes and Hood to Coast (more than once), this relay was a breath of fresh air! First off, it is a 1 day relay…yep, starts and ends all in the same day. That means not overnights in vans and night running. I was the team captain for the Gorgeous Girls. It was a great time. The sign up system is easy and you can edit times and members easily. The captains meeting the week before the race was fun…free beer was given out. The race it self was amazing! The first 8 legs are all through some of the most gorgeous parts of Oregon. After that, the remaining 4 legs are through some of the not so great parts of Portland. I ran leg 5. My first leg was nice and cool through the fall leaves. My second leg was a 6.25 mile stretch of the Spring Water trail. The first 4 miles was not so gorgeous as the trail was lined with homeless camps. All in all, the race directors do a great job pulling together this fun race. The medals were kicking and the finish line beer and party was a blast. I will sign up again for this, Oregon’s best relay!
