Every Spring, thousands of runners from all 50 states and several countries travel to Tracktown to take on the signature Marathon Weekend event, the Eugene Marathon. And for good reason, too. The Eugene Marathon course is 26.2 stunning, scenic, and flat miles through running history. You’ll run on the streets where hundreds of NCAA champion University of Oregon runners have trained throughout the years. You’ll run on the paths that Olympians call home. You’ll pass by the pub where Pre worked as a bartender. And best of all, you’ll Finish Where It Started.
This historic race course is the genesis of the Mother of All Relays, where it all started back in 1982. The stunning course remained unchanged until eventually the popularity of Hood to Coast reached participants from all 50 states and 7 continents, the first 11 legs are part of the original race course. Traverse through the lush old-growth forest, along the tranquil Little Nestucca River and reach the beautiful Pacific Ocean.
