The Portland Marathon is Coming
The Portland Marathon will take place on Sunday, October 6 (Tomorrow)
The race route has been entirely changed from previous routes in an effort to include more of Portland's neighborhoods and create a memorable experience for runners and residents. With this year's new route be prepared for the marathon to run through our neighborhood (specifically through the Lair Hill and Johns Landing areas).
Please note it will not be possible to cross the race route during the time when runners are present on the course. In South Portland the restriction on crossing the race route will begin at 7:10 a.m. The expected timeline for the last runner to pass the following locations and have the streets opened to regular traffic is as follows:
South Waterfront: 10:15 a.m.
Macadam & Iowa (near Starbucks): 10:30 a.m.
Sellwood Bridge: 10:45 a.m.
