Enjoy the convenience, camaraderie, and comfort of staying in one of our host hotels. These rates are at a big discount just for our participants. You’ll have other Pacific Northwest Marathon runners nearby, and hotel staff will know how to help you with your needs. At two of these hotels, you will have access to our race shuttles.


The Pacific Northwest Marathon cares about your success. That is why we offer to help you with your marathon training. We have two options, one for local participants, and one for those who live far away.

- Since 2015 -

At the Pacific Northwest Marathon, anything is possible. We help people overcome the most difficult challenges in order to achieve their fitness goals.

Our Mission

The mission of the Pacific Northwest Marathon is to help people overcome challenges in order to achieve their fitness goals. There is a fitness crisis in our country. People are suffering more and more from chronic disease, poor nutrition, and inactivity. We invite you to join our supportive community, fight this downward cycle, work to live the life you have always wanted, and inspire others along the way. The Pacific Northwest Marathon will help you achieve new heights, overcome personal challenges, and be more healthy. This is your journey!

USATF Certified Boston Qualifer

Measured according to the highest industry standards. Laid out and marked by trained professionals. You can run your race feeling confident we have done our part to keep you on course and running the correct distance. Your time will count!

The Pacific Northwest Marathon is positioned just before the usual registration deadline for the Boston Marathon, making it possibly your last chance. Please see the BAA website for official registration dates for Boston.
