Portland MarathonOct. 3, 2021
UPDATE as of August 27, 2021: At the Portland Marathon, we are working closely with the City of Portland and State public health officials to ensure the health and safety of our participants, spectators, volunteers & staff. Keeping this at the forefront of our planning, registered participants, volunteers and staff will be required to provide proof of a complete COVID-19 vaccination series or a negative COVID-19 test result for a test administered within 72 hours of attending the Portland Marathon on Sunday, October 3rd.
Registered-participant proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test will be verified upon entering the Expo & Packet Pick-Up on Saturday, October 2nd. Individuals who cannot provide proof of full vaccination or a negative test will be unable to pick up race materials required for participation in the event. Additional details regarding local testing options and proof of vaccination prior to the event are being developed and will be shared in the near future.
Additionally, in conjunction with Governor Brown's recent statewide mask mandate for indoor and outdoor venues, all participants, spectators, volunteers and staff will be required to wear a mask at the Expo & Packet Pick-Up, Start Line Corrals, Finish Line, and Post-Race Party. Registered participants WILL NOT be required to wear a mask on-course while actively participating in the Portland Marathon.
We want to remind runners of the Portland Marathon transfer/withdraw/deferment policies in place. Registered participants may transfer, withdraw, or defer their entry for a small fee. Please note, on Wednesday, September 1, the fee to defer your entry will increase by $20, and the option to withdraw will not be available. We strongly encourage runners who decide to transfer/withdraw/defer to do so by Tuesday, August 31st.
