Sign up for 2019 Portland Marathon Updates

It’s official – there WILL be a 2019 Portland Marathon!

We’ve been in contact with Jared Rohatinsky, the CEO of Brooksee (the company selected to put on the race) and they are already hip-deep in preparations. Like any big event, though, it’s what you don’t see, what happens behind the scenes, that brings it all together. We’re excited to say that we’re planning some ways for you to get to know Jared over the next couple of months, to invite you to ask him questions and get candid answers, and to be part of the next chapter for Portland’s marathon.

In the meantime, however, you can visit the temporary Portland Marathon website and submit your email address to be added to their information update list. Click on the bottom of the website where it says, “Read more,” to read a statement from Brooksee about their vision. Here’s an excerpt:

Brooksee is dedicated to raising the Portland Marathon to the national stage while showcasing the uniqueness of Portland and reinvesting back into the local community.

Brooksee is working with the City and other stakeholders to create a route that is worthy of a world-class marathon while balancing the immediacy of creating and producing a new event in just eight months. Registration will open as soon as these details are finalized. Rest assured, however, that the long term goal is to create a world-class event and course that showcases the city appropriately even if it cannot all be accomplished in the first year.


About Kelly Barten (1006 Articles)
I started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because I felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. I also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support LOCAL race organizers. I'm a Creighton Bluejay (undergrad) and an Oregon Duck (Sports Marketing MBA), and I live in Tigard with my husband and two kids. My "real job" is working for an incredibly awesome math textbook company doing marketing and production.
