The 2018 Eugene Marathon marks the 12th anniversary of one of America’s premier marathons being held right in TrackTown USA.

That’s right, we’re entering a second decade of fast times and personal triumphs running in the footsteps of legends.  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 2018 than the 12th 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.

Join us for a celebration of human will, determination and triumph this coming spring during the 2018 running of the Eugene Marathon. And make your own unforgettable history.

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 April 28th, logging their progress. Then, on race day, kids complete the final distance to make it a full marathon.  The Run TrackTown 5K starts just steps from Hayward Field right after the Duck Dash concludes for a quick run around the beautiful University neighborhood and UO campus.  Both races finish at historic Hayward Field with an all you can eat Krusteaz pancake breakfast awaiting them at the finish festival!
