VIRTUAL EVENT BAG
We are proud to be named the first race in the Northwest to achieve Gold Level Certification from the Council for Responsible Sport. We have also been named Top 10 Green Event in North America by Runner’s World. By using a virtual goodie bag, we continue to save countless pounds of paper and cardboard each year. Participants will receive an email the Friday before race day inviting them to access coupons and sponsor offers in our VIRTUAL EVENT BAG. Watch your inbox! New: Access the Virtual Event Bag from the app!
At the Health & Fitness Expo, participants receive a “Eugene Marathon” clear bag for gear check purposes (and to collect your Expo goodies). On race day, participants receive our reusable goodie bag pre-packed with refueling food and water when they cross the finish line!
Run Hub pacers will be available to meet participants at the Expo. This is your chance to strategize together and connect with other participants! Timing and a specific location will be announced in April 2019.
DJ YOGA FLOW
Time and Location: TBD
Join Chelsea from Hard Core Yoga and DJ Mandy Mac for the perfect pre-race yoga class! Enjoy DJ Mandy’s beats while Chelsea guides you through an all-levels flow to loosen up all the areas that get tight from running. You’ll have a blast while increasing mobility, preventing injury, and preparing your body for your best marathon yet! Please be aware – space is limited, so arrive early to secure your spot! Bring your mat and your funky flow. Mats provided for those coming from out of town.
FREE TEMPORARY TATTOOS

DINING IN EUGENE
We partner with many local restaurants to provide Eugene Marathon participants dinner specials on pre-race Saturday. Traditionally runners like to fuel up with pasta! Check out some of the local restaurants providing Eugene Marathon pasta specials and discounts on our Things To Do webpage.
