Race Information

Get in the holiday spirit, Portland! Portland finally has a half marathon in December! The fantastic out and back course starts and finishes at the Adidas North America Campus and winds along Willamette Blvd to the sounds of carolers all along the course!

The flat and scenic route is the only race course fully completed in beautiful North Portland, so you can be sure you're getting a unique event, full of fantastic features and sights. The Historic St. John's Bridge, the beautiful Univeristy of Portland campus, and panoramic views of Downtown Portland from the bluff of Willamette Blvd. are just a few of the highlights awaiting you!

Finish the race and treat yourself to a craft beer seasonal brew, hearty holiday soup, hot chocolate, hot oatmeal, egg nog, and more! You want holiday music? You get LOTS of Holiday music all morning long! With a combination of carolers along the course and DJ's spinning holiday beats at the finish, you're sure to get your fill of festive cheer this December. 

If you're not excited about Christmas, Hanukkah, and every other Holiday festivity after this race, then you just might be the Grinch!
