Run Around The Gorge is not happening in 2019.

The race is a two day (mostly) trail run in a stage format. Racers with run about 26 miles on the first day and about 15 miles on the second day. The terrain is mostly trails (75%) and a bit of country roads (25%). There are a few significant climbs (to get up and out of the gorge), but mostly, the course is rolling trails that contour along the gorge.

There are also shorter running options on both days. On day 1, you can do 9, 18, or the full 26 miles. On day 2, you can do 8 or the full 15 miles.
