South Burlingame Neighborhood Association
The Portland Marathon will take place on Sunday, Oct. 1, 2023. The static map shows the race route in the proximity of 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
Although the actual race route does not enter South Burlingame, it will impact nearby streets. Runners begin the race Downtown and eventually make their way south on SW Macadam Ave through South Portland. They then use the Sellwood Bridge to cross over into Sellwood-Moreland.
Special Traffic Considerations In Your Neighborhood
South Burlingame residents should avoid using SW Taylors Ferry Rd to access SW Macadam Ave between the hours of 7:15 and 10:45 a.m. In general it will not be possible to access or cross SW Macadam Ave anywhere between the South Waterfront and the Sellwood Bridge during this time.
Please use the I-5 Freeway or SW Barbur Blvd to travel into and out of the neighborhood on Sunday morning as opposed to SW Macadam Ave.
Sellwood Bridge: From 7:10 to 10:45 a.m. vehicles approaching the Sellwood Bridge from the north (driving south on Macadam) will not be able to access the bridge to head eastbound over the bridge. Vehicles approaching the Sellwood Bridge from the south (driving north on Macadam) will be able to access the bridge to head eastbound over the bridge. No vehicles will be allowed to travel westbound across the Sellwood Bridge from Sellwood into South Portland from 7:10 to 10:45 a.m.
In general, residents are encouraged to remain south of the 405 Freeway and use the Ross Island or Marquam Bridges (as opposed to other bridges such as the Hawthorne or Sellwood) on their way to/from the east side from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

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 email@example.com.
For questions regarding the City's administration of this permit, please contact Allison Madsen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-865-2482.
