October is a great time to visit Portland and it’s easy to get to, just 2 hours north of Boston! Acclaimed as a top small city, with great food and countless breweries, we think it makes for a pretty awesome marathon town too. And the Marathon start/finish line is easily walkable from downtown hotels, so you can even leave your car at home.

For more information about Portland-area hotels and planning your trip to the Gorham Savings Bank Maine Marathon, Half Marathon and Marathon Relay, we recommend Visit Portland.  And if you have any questions once you arrive, they’ll even be at our expo on Saturday.
