Tip Of The Day

Build a Foundation

Add some variety to your exercise routine. Run one day and strength train the next. This will not only hold your interest in the workouts longer, but it will give your body the time it needs for recovery. Additionally, you are covering more muscle groups throughout the body and keeping the workouts motivating and different.

To build up endurance for your 5K race include some interval training as part of your regimen. Use hill sessions and up-tempo to your runs to do this. Hold a steady running pace where you do not feel like you are just about to die, but that you can keep going.

Head to the track for shorter interval runs while learning to pace yourself. Learn to conserve your energy during the first part of the race and then to let go in the second half so you can make it to the finish line of you 5K race.

Bridge Of The Gods Half Marathon, 5k & 10k

The Bridge of the Gods Half Marathon, 10K & 5K will start on the Washington side of the spectacular Columbia River taking runners across the scenic Bridge of the Gods. Amazing views directly under foot await competitors and are sure to get the blood pumping before reaching your first mile. From the Bridge of the Gods the run will connect with the Historic Columbia River Highway State Park Trail and head west into the lush foothills of the Cascade Mountains. Runners will keep cool during the hot August weather by crossing 4 bridges and creeks as well as running under a thick shaded canopy of old growth forest. The half marathon turn around is located west of the newest section of the Old Hwy Trail at Moffett Creek and from there runners return to Cascade Locks. After a short sprint through town runners will head into Marine Park were the Sternwheeler is located and across the bridge that spans the historic locks to finish on Thunder Island. At the finish is a beer garden, music and expo transforming the small Thunder Island into a rocking big party right in the middle of the Columbia River.
