Summer Series Race #2: Carson to Stevenson Ridge Run This Saturday!

A view of the Gorge from Carson, Washington.

After the heat and hills of Hagg Lake, we thought we’d take it easy on you for the second race of the 2013 TRL Summer Series… Ha! Surely I must be kidding! Don’t tell me you fell for that. And don’t call me Shirley!

In fact, the Carson to Stevenson Ridge Run 16k is so hilly, the Columbia Gorge Running Club obscured the vertical scale on their elevation profile!

But the great Gorge setting and spectacular views will make up for the heavy breathing and screaming quads, and it’s always fun to compete and hang out with your fellow Lizards on a pleasant spring Saturday.

The course is a combination of dirt and paved roads, so plan your footwear accordingly.

What: Carson To Stevenson Ridge Run 16k (9.94 miles)

When: This Saturday, May 18th.

Where: The race starts in Carson, WA, at Backwoods Brewing (1162 B Wind River Road, Carson, WA 98610) and finishes at the Skamania County Fairgrounds in Stevenson (shouldn’t it finish at the brewpub?!). Shuttle vans will leave Stevenson at 7:15am to take runners to the start in Carson, but carpooling is encouraged.

What time: Runners start at 8:30.

Carpooling from Portland:  It takes about an hour to get from Portland to Stevenson, so Lizards may want to meet at the I-205 Mcmenamins for a 6:00am departure.
