Welcome to Gorge Waterfalls, offering scenic 100K, 50K & 30K trail running races through the heart of the Columbia River Gorge, home to some of the sweetest trail running terrain in the entire United States. The race is one of the most popular on the US West Coast, with each race selling out quickly. We hope to see you in the heart of the Gorge, Cascade Locks on race weekend. #LFGORGE
Through the combined skillsets of Freetrail and Daybreak Racing, we will endeavor to deliver a premium quality race experience for our participants, filled with spectacular views, challenging trails, good vibes, and an exciting finish line experience to celebrate human achievement. We hope you'll join us!
Due to high demand, the 50K race is now a lottery drawing, helping to give more people an equal chance at getting into the race. Signups open September 1 and close September 16. We'll conduct the lottery drawing on September 17th.
Registration for the 100K and 30K opens on September 18th and are not lotteries.
Waitlists for all races will be opened for each race after they sell out.
The event is now staged at beautiful Marine Park along the banks of the Columbia River in Cascade Locks, Oregon, approximately 40 minutes drive east of Portland. Marine Park offers a number of amenities, including ample parking, indoor space, expansive views up, down and across the river... and ahem, an entire island, Thunder Island, where we have special permission to allow participant camping!!!
