The 26.2 mile race starts on the corner of 15th Avenue and Agate Street, in front of historic Hayward Field. The course runs the first 9 miles through south Eugene around Amazon Park and the University of Oregon. Runners then cross the Knickerbocker footbridge and split from the half marathoners as the full marathon participants turn east (right) down the canal path toward Springfield. The 5 mile Springfield loop takes participants by Island Park and Springfield High School and ends with a scenic pass by the University of Oregon’s Autzen Stadium and the baseball park on Leo Harris Parkway.
Participants return to the Eugene bike paths where they enjoy approximately 9 miles of scenic river trails and run in and out of six parks. Along the way, runners will cruise by Alton Baker Park, Owens Rose Garden and Skinner Butte. In total, participants run by 12 parks before reaching the arches of Powell Plaza and the final stretch on the track at historic Hayward Field. No doubt, this is one of the prettiest and flattest USATF certified marathons in the country!
