Hood-to-Coast August 27-28

It's almost time for another Hood-to-Coast run through Columbia County! The annual marathon, which goes from Mount Hood to Seaside, will occur August 27 & 28. Several thousand participants are expected on each of the various portions--the full marathon, high school run from Portland to Seaside, and walking marathon from Portland to Seaside.

The event starts in Columbia County on US 30 at the Multnomah County line. After going through Scappoose, the route heads off US 30 at Church Road in Warren, heads past the Fairgrounds into mostly rural areas of the county. The race then heads through Mist and Birkenfeld before exiting at the Clatsop County line.

The Columbia County Sheriff Office will restrict left turns onto US 30 from Church Road during the event.
