We have cancelled the Gorge apres Gorge :(
It is with clear minds and heavy hearts that we have decided to cancel this years Gorge Apres Gorge. We ran/climbed/walked the course today and, while it was spectacularly beautiful, we came to the decision that it was not particularly safe.
We love this race and fun run/walk, but more importantly we love our community of runners, walkers, volunteers and friends who come out each year to celebrate life and drink hot chocolate with us. Please know we deliberated greatly. With that said we are more than happy to save your registration for next year's race. We will be so excited to see you next year! If this is a great hardship please contact us.
Once again thank you for coming each year and thank you for your understanding this snowy and icy year.
Love, Tanya and Leslie
