Come participate in the 11th annual White Salmon Backyard Half and 4 Miler!
The gun goes off at 9:00 am for both the 4 mile and half marathon race and we are running the courses counterclockwise.
This event is a fundraiser for our White Salmon Cross Country Boosters and the Columbia Gorge Running Club Student Scholarship Fund. We suggest a donation of $25 or more. The Booster Club helps the Columbia High School Cross Country team go to running camp, compete in an amazing races around the Northwest, purchase shoes for runners in financial need, and much more! The CGRC scholarship helps high school runners continue their goals beyond high school. Additional donations and donations less than $25 will be available at the race.
You can also sign up without donating. If you change your mind, you can donate at the run.
Last year we had almost 300 runners participate, and we are hoping for the same this year!
