41st Annual Portland Marathon & 3rd Annual Portland Marathon HALF
October 7, 2012
For forty 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, one of the Ten Greenest Races and the most Walker-Friendly Marathon in the Country.
Both our Full and Half Marathon courses are 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 proof finisher’s medal, two performance shirts, a challenge coin and pendant, to name just a few!
Related events include a 3-day Event Directors’ College, two-day Sports and Fitness Expo, Kids’ Fun Run & Festival, and on Marathon Day, our 10K Downhill Dash and 10K Family Walk—there’s an event for everyone!
Join us in 2012...but hurry, registration for the full marathon will sell out in early summer. The HALF general registration is closed, but entry is still available through our official charities. To learn more, or to register, go to:portlandmarathon.org
