2019 Race Weekend Announcements

In addition to our social media, please use this page for official announcements throughout race weekend! We will provide information regarding the Finish Festival, Health and Fitness Expo and more! If you have questions throughout the weekend, please find a volunteer, Eugene Marathon staff member or visit our FAQ page for more information.


The local rivers in the surrounding Lane County area have subsided dramatically in the last few days, which is great news for the Eugene Marathon route. The courses will be run as planned and runners are encouraged to enjoy the beautiful Willamette River in its non-flood stage. Yay!


April 17, 2019: We are so excited to announce that this year’s Kids Duck Dash is the largest in Eugene Marathon history. As we strive to create an event that is safe for everyone, we are capping registration. Registration closes on Wednesday, April 17 at 11:59pm.

If you still need to register, please do so by the deadline. We will not reopen registration and everything must be processed by 11:59pm. You can register here. 

If you turned in a registration form to your PE teacher, please expect a confirmation email by Monday, April 22 at 11:59pm.


April 12, 2019: For the first time ever, we’re excited to launch the VIP Race Pass! Guaranteed to provide the best race experience ever, this is the best way to get in on the action as you #FinishOnTheFifty. You’ll have access to the Club Level suite before and after the race, have a reserved parking space, treated to a post-race breakfast buffet, dedicated massage therapists, complimentary coffee and light beverages and a special view of the #FinishOnTheFifty.

Cost is $100 and limited to the first 50 people. SIGN UP HERE!

Statement on Flooding in Eugene

April 10, 2019: Recent heavy rains in the Willamette Valley have caused flooding on portions of our Marathon course. Based on weather forecasts and statements from the Army Corps of Engineers, we expect water levels to remain high through the middle of this week and to begin to recede later in the week. Athlete and volunteer safety is our number one priority. At this point, we do not anticipate that this will impact our event and we encourage participants to continue to plan for a successful Marathon Weekend.

Stay tuned for further updates as we near race weekend!
