The Tears - Half Marathon

"The Tears" is the third and final stage of the Golden Ultra.  This is a beautiful, rolling 22 km jaunt on the northern slopes of the Columbia River valley.  The first and last 2.5 km of the course is on the double-wide, gravel-surfaced town trail, so you can bask in the glory of cheering spectators.  The remaining running is on some technical single track.
