The City of Pasco is once again teaming up with Lampson International for the 32nd Annual Cable Bridge Run. I don’t know about you, but I have been looking forward to participating in the 10K portion of this run. For the last several months my dad and I have gone out running along the Columbia River in Kennewick and Pasco Washington.
