One of the Northwest’s premier marathons returns on May 1, 2016 with the 10th running of the Eugene Marathon. Named a “perfect race” by Runner’s World magazine, you’ll enjoy a scenic, USATF-certified course known for its flat route as it passes through beautiful parks and tree-lined paths that crisscross the picturesque Willamette River.
In a nod to the history and tradition of being held in “TrackTown USA”, the Eugene Marathon features a full weekend of fun and family-friendly festivities leading up to the race itself, including entertainment, special guests, a health and fitness expo and much more. And with racing options ranging from the full or half marathon to a 5k and the kids’ Duck Dash, there’s something for every runner of every ability.
Whether you’re a first-time racer or a seasoned veteran, you won’t find a better running destination in 2016 than the 10th edition of the Eugene Marathon. And no matter what race you choose, you’ll break the finish line tape in front of cheering fans on the legendary track inside Historic Hayward Field – one of the world’s most revered track and field venues and home to iconic athletes and coaches such as Steve Prefontaine, Bill Bowerman and Ashton Eaton.
Join us for a celebration of human will, determination and triumph this coming spring during the 10th running of the Eugene Marathon. And make your own unforgettable history.
