Race Information

The Eugene Marathon is one of America's Premier Marathons. Named a “perfect race” by Runner’s World magazine, you’ll enjoy a scenic, USATF-certified course known for its flat and FAST route as it passes through beautiful parks and tree-lined paths that crisscross the picturesque Willamette River.

Whether you’re a first-time racer or a seasoned veteran, you won’t find a better running destination in 2017 than the 11th edition of the Eugene Marathon and Half Marathon. And no matter what race you choose, you’ll break the finish line tape in front of cheering fans at Historic Hayward Field – one of the world’s most revered track and field venues and home to iconic athletes and coaches such as Steve Prefontaine, Bill Bowerman and Ashton Eaton.

The Eugene Marathon features a full weekend of fun and family-friendly festivities, including the Run Tracktown 5K and the Kids' Duck Dash held Saturday morning. 

There’s something for every runner of every ability.  Kids ages 4-12 have a chance to finish at historical Hayward Field like countless other Olympians and world record holders at the Kids Duck Dash – a quick 1K (approx) around the heart of UO campus.  For a bigger challenge kids can participate in a marathon – one mile at a time. They can choose to run or walk 25.5 miles over a period of time before May 6th, logging their progress. Then, on race day, kids complete the final distance to make it a full marathon.
