For 45 years the Portland Marathon has been welcoming participants to the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Accolades from Runner's World Magazine include: Best US Race in October, Best in the Northwest, Best Marathon for First Timers and the most Walker-Friendly Marathon in the Country.
Our course is fast and forgiving, with more entertainment per mile than other events, along with excellent volunteer support, and great goodies at the finish including: a mint-struck finisher’s medal, a performance shirt, a tree seedling, a challenge coin and pendant, to name just a few! Please join us for perfect fall weather and a most memorable marathon experience!
