Astoria Warrenton - Pure Character

Great Columbia Crossing

Take advantage of the rare opportunity to run or walk across the longest continuous truss bridge in North America, and revel in the view of the majestic Columbia River and surrounding Astoria Warrenton landscape. The Great Columbia Crossing is an official USA Track and Field Certified 10K, and is a scenic adventure suitable for all ages. The race takes place on a moderately flat route with one steep incline to the peak of the bridge – well worth the view!
The Great Columbia Crossing takes place annually in October. Spots for the race are likely to sell out and advance registration is required, which can be done here. And don’t forget to book your stay in Astoria or Warrenton early!
