Eat. Drink. Run.

The Maine Marathon is much more than the thrill of race day and a beautiful course. It’s the entire experience of spending time in Portland – a city beloved by locals and visitors alike.

Stroll cobblestone streets lined with art galleries and boutique shops. Walk along the working waterfront to watch lobster boats and ferries head in and out of Casco Bay. Eat at the countless, award-winning restaurants. Savor a beer at some of the world’s best breweries. Enjoy amazing attractions, museums, art and cultural experiences.

There’s no better place to relax and unwind before or after running one of the most scenic and exciting races in the country.
