We have a new venue for Bridge of the Goddess 2017 due to the wildfires in the Columbia River Gorge. We are working diligently to provide all details to you to make this change as easy as possible.  Vancouver, WA is situated on the Columbia River in Southwest Washington just 43 miles west of Cascade Locks.  Vancouver has ample street and garage parking and is easily accessible off of Interstate 5.  Esther Short Park is a beautiful park in the City of Vancouver which is where we will start and finish the race.  Our 10K course will run out and back on road, paths and sidewalks along the Columbia River.  The half marathon will also run along the Columbia River before and after taking a turn into the historic Fort Vancouver.
