iTab Finisher Medals

Sunday, 11:30am

Congratulations on finishing the 2018 Eugene Marathon. Did you purchase an iTab finisher medal placement? They will be mailed within 3 weeks of the race.

RACE MORNING UPDATES

SUNDAY, 5:10AM

WEATHER

The local weather calls for some light rain and occasional showers- a true Eugene experience! We encourage people to come prepared for the rain by dressing appropriately and bringing additional layers for the Finish Festival. And- do your sun dance. A little pre-run dance can’t hurt, right?

GEAR CHECK

Gear Check is located off of 15th Ave. on Field 1. Please enter the soccer field with your bag ready to go. If you weren’t able to pick up a bag at the Expo, we will have clear plastic bags ready for your arrival. After you race, head over to the same tent and show the volunteers your bib number to retrieve your items. Please note that the Eugene Marathon is not responsible for lost items. Random bag checks will be conducted.

RESTROOMS

You asked and we listened! There are more than 70 bathrooms near the starting line next to the UO Law School adjacent to Agate Street. In addition, there are Buck’s Potties located on the course approximately every two miles.

TRACKING

You MUST run with your phone in order for the Active Experience tracking system to work. Your bib number is not tied to the App tracking system. If you encounter issues with the app, please check out this page for more information about precise tracking information. Don’t want to run with your phone? No problem. Check out this link to sign up for texting updates to your friends and family while you cross split mats out on the course.

Race Day Packet Pick-Up

Saturday, 4:45pm

If you purchased race day packet pick-up during your registration, your packet (race bib, safety pins, gear check bag/tag, and t-shirt) will be available to pick up on Sunday morning between 5:30 – 6:15 a.m. Race officials will close down the table at 6:15 a.m. Race day packet pick-up is located just inside the entrance to Soccer Field #1, (directly west of Hayward Field) on 15th St. between University St. & Agate St.  It will be right next to ‘Gear Check’ which is noted on the attached map.  Once you pick up your race packet, go back out to 15th St., head east toward Agate St.  Take a right onto Agate St. and you will be just a few steps from the starting line!

We look forward to hosting you in Track Town USA!
