The marathon starts on the west side of the Willamette at SW Salmon and Naito (by the Salmon Springs Fountain) which is great because of the ample room for participants to spread out before the race. The first few miles take participants west and a little north through downtown, the Pearl, Nob Hill, and the Northwest District. That’s as close as it gets to Highway 30! From there, the race runs south to the Sellwood Bridge, through Sellwood, Westmoreland, along Crystal Springs Blvd, and even up and down the divided Reed College Parkway. The route follows Milwaukie Ave north and winds around to the Esplanade south of OMSI, the crosses the Burnside Bridge to finish on the west side just north of the Hawthorne Bridge. This is much more scenic route that encompasses much of Portland’s beauty and charm than the former course.
The half marathon skips the downtown and NW section of town, starting out by heading south to the Sellwood. From there, it follows the latter portion of the full marathon course.
