Portland Marathon returns for another year

September 3, 2017 by  

The Portland Marathon and Health Expo is taking place over three days next month.

The first two days will be taken up with the 33rd annual Sports and Fitness Expo from October 7 to 8. Those who are signed up to run in the marathon will be able to pick up their packages here, which include a timing chip, a number bib, a souvenir program, and a reusable bag.

The expo is set to feature interactive displays and free lectures on topics such as walking, general fitness, and running. In addition, a variety of vendors will be on hand to sell and showcase their latest products related to health and fitness. A kids’ run planned for the second day.

The Portland Marathon and Half Marathon will be held on October 8. Fees to register are $145 for the full marathon and $250 for the half-marathon, and money raised goes to support various charities. All participants will receive a long-sleeved shirt, medal, and a variety of souvenir items including a Portland Rose. The top three finishers in each division, both male and female, will receive awards.

Portland printing companies often provide bibs and T-shirts for events such as this one, which will be held at the Hilton Portland and Executive Tower. Those interested can visit the official website to learn more.
