Lloyd District Community Association
The Portland Marathon will take place on Sunday, October 3, 2021. The static map shows the race route in and around your neighborhood. Continue to scroll down to see an interactive map of the entire route. As a rule of thumb it will not be possible to drive on, or drive across, the streets used for the race until the last runner has passed the location and the traffic control devices have been removed. Vehicles will be turned away one block prior to reaching the race route.
Route Description In Your Neighborhood
Runners will enter the Lloyd District via the Broadway Bridge. They will continue east on Broadway and then turn right (south) onto Benton Ave. The route then travels east on Winning Way and performs a clockwise loop around the Moda Center. Runners then return west on Winning Way and connect onto Broadway via Larrabee Ave. They exit the Lloyd District by running back west across the Broadway Bridge.
Special Traffic Considerations In Your Neighborhood
It will not be possible to drive on or across Broadway, Benton Ave, Winning Way, or Wheeler Ave on the portions of those roads used by the race (please refer to the map) between the hours of 7:15 and 9:45 a.m.
The Broadway Bridge will be entirely closed to all vehicles (including Portland Streetcar) from 7:15-9:45 a.m. After 9:45 a.m. there will be no restrictions on use of the Broadway Bridge.
The Steel Bridge will remain open during the entire event, but vehicles entering Old Town from the Lloyd District using the Steel Bridge will experience delays from 7:15-9:45 a.m.
The Burnside Bridge will always maintain one eastbound lane and one westbound lane open during the entire event, but vehicles traveling west up Burnside from the Bridge will experience delays from 7:00-8:00 a.m., including a complete temporary closure of Burnside from 7:10-7:30 a.m.
The I-5 Southbound freeway on-ramp at the northeast corner of the Moda Center (Wheeler Ave / Williams Ave) will remain open and unobstructed during the entire event.
Law enforcement will be present to restrict all westbound traffic attempting to access the Broadway Bridge from 7:15-9:45 a.m. Westbound vehicles will not be able to travel west of Benton Ave.
"No Parking" Streets & Driveway Access Along Route
The interactive map below shows the entire race route. Zoom in to see the exact streets that will be used for the race. All streets that are used for the actual race will be posted "No Parking" from 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 2nd, to 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 3rd. If your home or business is located on the actual race route, please note that any vehicles parked on the street during the indicated hours will be courtesy towed. Towed vehicles will be taken to the closest possible street that is not posted as No Parking.
"No Parking" enforcement will also be in effect in instances where one-way streets run into the street used for the actual race. If your home or business is located on a one-way street that intersects the race route, you will not be able to park your vehicle within one block of the race route from 2:00 p.m. on Saturday to 2:00 p.m. on Sunday. If your car is towed, please call 503-823-0044.
Because it will not be permissible to drive on the streets used for the race while runners are present, residents and businesses whose driveways access the race route will not be able to pull their vehicles into/out of their driveways during the closures; they should instead plan to park their vehicles on a nearby street that is not located on the race route. In your neighborhood, the streets that will be used for the race and will therefore be posted "No Parking" and inaccessible to resident and business driveways are:
- N Broadway between Broadway Bridge and N Benton Ave
- N Benton Ave between N Broadway and N Winning Way
- N Winning Way between N Larrabee Ave and NE Wheeler Ave
- NE Wheeler Ave between N Winning Way and NE Multnomah St
- N Larrabee Ave between N Interstate Ave and N Broadway
Vehicles approaching these streets will be stopped and turned around one block prior to reaching the street until the course has been cleared of runners and re-opened.
Neighborhood Cheer Challenge
Does your neighborhood association want to get involved with the marathon and make some money? All neighborhood associations (including those that are not on the actual race route) are invited to participate in the Neighborhood Cheer Challenge. Here's how it works: If your association decides to participate, you will be assigned a spot on the race course to take over and demonstrate your neighborhood's personality. You are encouraged to bring signs, play music, decorate, and most importantly CHEER on the runners and help them have an unforgettable experience.
After the race, runners will vote on their favorite groups and the top five neighborhood associations will win $500 each, with the first place group taking home the grand prize of $1,000. There is no limit or requirement on the number of people who need to participate, and there is no fee to participate. To sign up your neighborhood, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For questions regarding the City's administration of this permit, please contact Allison Madsen at email@example.com or 503-865-2482.
