Portlandathon 2018

Once presumed dead, Portland’s marathon is back on for 2018. The City of Portland has chosen PRC owners Dave and Paula Harkin—also the owners and operators of Run with Paula Events— to put on the Portlandathon 26.2 mile footrace on Oct. 7. You know it’s going to be good.

“I believe our great city deserves an equally great race,” Paula Harkin said. “Fall just would not be the same without a marathon in Portland.”

The Portlandathon will include the showcase 26.2-mile event, as well as a half-marathon, the Mayor’s 5-mile race, and a 4-mile river walk. More information will be available soon at runwithpaula.com.

  1. I had registered for the original Portland Marathon, which was canceled. WIll my registration be transferred to the new Portlandathon?

    • Hi Deepa. No, your registration will not be transferred. Portlandathon is not affiliated with the defunct Portland Marathon organization. If you haven’t received a refund, you need to follow up with the former race organizers: http://portlandmarathon.org/faqs/

    • Hi Joe. The time limit is 7.5 hours. The city requires us to reopen all the roads at that point. Start/Finish line is on SW Naito Parkway at SW Salmon Street. -Ryan

  6. Hiya,
    We’re hoping to come into town and support a runner friend. Any good resources out there for spectators? I’d love to know a bit about parking or good spots to cheer runners on since I’m not very familiar with Portland.

    • Hi Nicole. You can find the course maps here: https://runwithpaula.com/. Probably the easiest places to access to cheer on runners are along Willamette Blvd. in north Portland. You can park along the sidestreets nearby and walk a short distance to the course.
