One of the Most Beautiful PNW Marathons
Our unique course takes you on a journey down the Willamette river from one town to another. The starting point is the quaint, tree-lined downtown of Coburg, Oregon. The finish line is the peaceful town of Harrisburg, Oregon, situated along the Willamette River. Both towns are very excited to host you for this race.
Both the marathon and half follow a point to point course with no back tracking. That makes it easier to follow and not as crowded. It also means you get to run gradually downhill. Hurray for downhill in the PNW Marathon!
Run a Beautiful PNW Marathon
In the fall, this PNW marathon is even more strikingly beautiful. Run through corridors of towering oak trees, red, orange, and green maples, deep purple plums, golden grains ready for harvest. Visit the farms and see orange pumpkins, and apples of every color ripening on the trees. The tree-lined Willamette River accompanies you.
