About the Races
The Maine Marathon, Half Marathon, and Marathon Relay events feature an out-and-back course with rolling hills and views of the Portland skyline, the Atlantic Ocean, and plenty of fall foliage. All participants are together for the first 6.5 miles before the half marathon breaks off and returns to Portland. The marathon and relay continue along Route 88 to Yarmouth before the return trip to Portland. Both courses feature a mixture of rolling hills and flat sections, but start and finish with 2 flat miles along Baxter Boulevard and Portland’s Back Cove. The marathon course is USATF certified and a Boston Marathon qualifier.
This is a Maine Track Club event and is an all-volunteer-driven, nonprofit event, with proceeds going to community charities. Approximately 40% of gross revenue is donated to charities each year. The 2019 primary beneficiaries are Eastern Trail Alliance, Girls on the Run, Portland Community Squash, Rippleffect and WinterKids. Find out more about the 2019 beneficiaries.
