In 2016, we were 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 at the Run Hub booth at 1:00pm on Saturday.  This is your chance to meet pacers, strategize together and connect with other participants!


Saturday, April 28, 4:00pm at the Lane Event Center (Expo!)

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.


Our FREE Eugene Marathon temporary tattoos were a HUGE hit in 2017.  Look for this fun way to show your spirit again in 2018.  Get inked on us!


We will again partner with 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.


Bring your used shoes to the Health & Fitness Expo and we will donate them to Soles4Souls!  Last year, we recycled nearly 600 pairs of shoes – help us get to 1,000 pairs of recycled shoes.  Every pair you donate earns one raffle ticket for a free entry into the 2019 Marathon!


Attend the 2018 Health & Fitness Expo and appear in front of thousands of sports/health enthusiasts and their friends and families.
