Best in the Northwest! Join us for our 45th year!
The Portland Marathon has been building a tradition, earning a reputation and we invite you to join the fun Oct. 9, 2016!
Our goal has always been to produce the best event possible, and provide a memorable marathon or half marathon experience for each and every one of our runners and walkers. And to top it all off, we send our finishers home with great mementos – the most and best participant perks anywhere!
Charity Half Entries Still Available!
In a charity campaign known as “Help Save the RFH,” a limited number of Portland Marathon Half entries (the event has been closed for general public registration since January 31) will again be AVAILABLE and stay available for a limited period of time.
Top Rated and Best in the Northwest
The Portland Marathon is rated as one of the premier marathons in the U.S. and one of the top 10 road race events in the U.S, and one of the top 40 races of all types and distances. Runner’s World called the Portland Marathon “The best people’s marathon in the West” and for the past ten years has ranked it as one of the top marathons in the country. We are also very proud of previous rankings by the Ultimate Guide to Marathons which has listed the Portland Marathon as: “The best organized Marathon in North America” & “One of the top 3 marathons to do as a first marathon”
