How will I know if I’ve won an award and how will I receive it?

Awards will be presented to the top 6 finishers in each 5 year age division – Male and Female – in the Marathon and Half Marathon. Wheelchair awards are given to the top 3 finishers, Men and Women, in the Marathon only. Clydesdale and Pump & Run awards are given to the top 3 Men and Women – 39 and Under and 40+ – in each weight class (5 weight classes for Men and 3 for Women) in the Marathon only.  Nordic Walk and Race Walk awards are given to the top 3 finishers, Men and Women, 39 and Under and 40+ in the Half Marathon only.

Awards will be presented to the top men and women finishers in the Marathon/Half Marathon in the Finish area after they complete the event. To ensure that results are accurate and participants receive the correct awards, all other awards will be mailed 6-8 weeks after the event.

Since awards are mailed post-race, it is very important that participants have up-to-date address information on file; if your address changes after registration, please visit the Solutions Table on Marathon weekend (near bib pickup) and submit an address change.  Please note that awards not received due to address changes will not be reissued and returned awards will not be remailed. Correction requests will not be accepted after January 15, 2015. Questions regarding award categories and distribution can be e-mailed to Portland Marathon Awards.

Massage Practitioners

A limited number of licensed massage therapists will be available for all marathon finishers. Sessions last 20, 40, and 60 minutes and are available for a fee. All post-race massages will take place inside the Hilton Portland & Executive Tower.

Pre-race massage will also be available at Hilton Portland & Executive Tower both Friday and Saturday. Come to the Sports & Fitness Expo or call the Hilton Athletic Club directly at (503) 220-2672 for all pre and post race massage appointments.


Personal on-course and finish-line photos will be taken by photographers from MarathonFoto, a Portland photo- processor. A variety of event photos will be taken. Last year over 96% of the runners and walkers were photographed at either the finish or out along the course. Don’t forget to smile. Please do not cover up your number. Runners and walkers can obtain a special identification ribbon from FlashPro at the Expo. It is not required, but helps photographers spot you on the course.

Photos will be displayed on the Portland Marathon website, and may also be purchased online. They will be viewable later on event day, along with the results.
