Only 2 weeks until the next race in the 2017 Summer Series. And this one's a doozy. A half marathon on the trails that does a *wee* bit of climbing But it is a gorgeous course with some great views of the Gorge, and is easily one of my favorite races out there.
The race starts at 9am in White Salmon. So plenty of time to wake up and drive out to the Gorge before the start. And no trip to White Salmon would be complete without a post-race lunch at Everbody's Brewing.
If you feel like carpooling, meet at the Mall 205 McMenamins at 7:15. It's about an hour drive to White Salmon from there, so that will save some fuel, and toll money to cross the Bridge of the Gods both ways. That should get us there by 8:15, which is enough time to get your bib, warm up a bit, use the bathroom, and prepare for some fun in the hills. I imagine that with a lunch stop, we should be back to the carpool location around 2pm.
If you haven't already registered, get yourself signed up now. This is going to be a fun-filled day you won't want to miss out on.
