From the start in Umatilla, participants descend to the waterfront and traverse the Columbia River into Washington via McNary Dam.  This is the only time each year that the dam is open to the public. This race is a powerful experience from the surging waters of the mighty Columbia to the peaceful voice of the desert vista.
