Portland Mayor Plans To Work With Scandal-plagued Portland Marathon

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler will allow the Portland Marathon to hold a race in 2018, his office just confirmed. "We are proceeding in 2018 according to the status quo," he said. In 2017, the Oregon Dept of Justice opened an investigation into the nonprofit's corporate structure and financial relationships with other businesses owned by two Portland Marathon's two board members. In 2017, fights with the city over course layout and policing led to a delay in the marathon getting a permit to operate.
