Pacific Northwest Marathon Race Description

One of the fastest courses in Oregon, Washington, and California.  Run downriver along the Willamette from the beautiful, quaint town of Coburg to Harrisburg.  These towns are preparing to celebrate with you and make your race a day to remember.  The course is very flat along the valley floor and gradually downhill to give you a little boost.  Along the way, you get to explore the scenic farmland of the southern Willamette Valley.

Lovely Experience

My husband and I loved the small scale of this race, especially the ability for all the family members and friends to celebrate with their loved ones as they crossed the finish line. We loved the run, and we loved witnessing the sweet moments and personal victories. Very well done!

Badly directed for a BQ

Raced for a BQ.My watch I did,but ran an extra mile due to poor course directions,I did not.Volunteers need to be directing everyone for turns,because little signs don't help,& chalk fades.I've done small races where they had big signs & used cones & also had people directing runners,as we are focused,that it helps they be there to wave us in the right direction.Since every runner is spaced out,it be best to do that.waste of a trip, as I came to run and BQ.Race ruined it for me.

No food on course

Gorgeous course. Loved the finish line party. It was nice to finish and have everything you desired right at your fingertips. I have never seen a race that didn't have food on the course until mile 18. That took me from running the race of my life to full bonk and nearly dropping from the race. Outside of that all things were great in my opinion. I will do it again(and I am not much of a fan of marathons.)

Marginalized for 5K Runners

More a run for half and full marathon runners. Little or no acknowledgement for 5K runners. Results for the 5K were not even listed. But the course was a picturesque route. Ran out of shirts in my size even though it was paid for.

This was such a fun race and the course is flat and beautiful And on a Saturday! So nice if you gather for worship on Sunday or just want a day to recover before returning to work or school on Monday morning. Thank you for the great race.

Amazing experience!

I loved this race. Registration was inexpensive & swift. Packet retrieval was flexible. Volunteers were great. This ran through a residential area (0-6), then along Williamette River (6-18), then back to residential. There were volunteers at every turn to make sure you were on track. Mile 6-18 was breath-taking with stunning views. There were ample fluids & amenities. Overall, a great experience coming from PHL. The shirt is nice & the medal is above par. David did an excellent job!

Fantastic first race

The event went off without a hitch, there was fantastic entertainment at the finish line and the food provided was amazing. I couldn't be happier with how the race went.

PR'd for Boston

Liked the course. Fast and flat. Ran my fastest marathon yet. I would run this one again. One suggestion after running a few other marathons is have a better kickoff the morning of the race. Hype the crowd. Some sort of sound system would have been great...like how it was set up at the finish line. It was almost anti-climatic at the start. The shirt that came with the race were nice, however, the sizes were not true to size. I was swimming in my medium and that is my size. Won't wear it.

I think the course is great. It was nice that there were many aid stations so that water/gatorade/gels were available almost anytime that I needed these.

Dr.

The course is flat and beautiful. Volunteers are friendly and really helpful. The organization provides many water stations, which certainly help runners a lot. The only concern is the traffic control in Coburg road, Powerline road, and Bowers road. Runners need to pay extra attention to coming vehicles. It will be great if there is more control on traffic. BTW, pizza in the expo are delicious. Thank you for holding the great race. Good Job! I will definitely come back again!!

Well organized, great conditions, fast results

Thank you, PNW Marathon, for a personal best! This is a beautiful course through the Willamette valley, starting right at sunrise. You will not find better conditions for hours of running. The course can be lonely along some of the quiet stretches, but there is always a sprinkling of encouraging people along the way. The support stations are frequent, and the massage at the end ensured the speediest recovery I have had from such hard work. Thank you!
