The Portland Marathon isback on track. The Portland Running Company will be running it this year. It was just announced that the 2018 Race might happen after all. Story in Running Daily News. After 47 years the Portland Marathon has been cancelled. Details in Running News Daily. The Portland Marathon was 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”

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!

I love this marathon. And I'm not alone. Runner's World states that "perhaps more than any other running event in the country, this race keeps evolving, keeps getting better". They chose the Portland Marathon as the "Race of the Month" and said the event is one of the "friendliest, best organized, most family-oriented races in the country.

I loved this event and I'm tempted to run it again. The course was beautiful & somewhat entertaining, the field of runners small enough that you didn't feel crowded, aid stations well organized. I didn't know what to expect after crossing the finish line and I was blown away by the swag! After all said & done they give you 2 shirts, a finishers medal, 2 commemorative coins, and plenty of recovery fuel. You definitely get your money's worth from your registration cost. There are a couple of hills in this race, and you cross a couple of bridges, which gives you a nice change-up of muscles. It happened to be sunny on race day and the views were stunning.
