As of Wednesday, October 9, 2013
Oct. 27 will mark the fifth year for the Columbia Gorge Marathon and Half Mara-thon, showing continuing growth in the number of participants each year as people talk about how they like to visit and enjoy the beauty and recreation the Gorge has to offer.
Over 95 percent of the participants are from outside the Gorge region. The race had 1,100 people in 2012 and is on track for a 10-12 percent increase this year.
