Hit your runner’s high atop the Astoria Bridge (copy)

Runners during a previous Great Columbia Crossing 10K run/walk.

The annual Great Columbia Crossing 10K run/walk will be held as a virtual event from Sunday to Oct. 17.

The virtual event is a replacement for the annual in-person event where hundreds of runners and walkers cross the Astoria Bridge. The Astoria-Warrenton Chamber of Commerce announced the event would go virtual in June after a slew of regular North Coast events were canceled as a precaution to the coronavirus.

Participants can choose to run either a 5K or 10K in their town of residence. After they’ve finished, participants can upload race times to an online database to see how they placed against other runners.

Registration costs $40 per person. Participants will receive a race bib, finisher medal, long sleeve t-shirt and coupon book. An optional fleece headband and other items are also available.

Event registration is held online at greatcolumbiacrossing.com.
