The Forest Park Trail Marathon and Half Marathon is a benefit event for The Forest Park Conservancy, the only nonprofit focused exclusively on protecting and maintaining the natural habitat and trails of Portland's renowned Forest Park. This is a unique opportunity for runners to experience a challenging trail marathon fully within the city limits of Portland, Oregon. The route traverses 26.2 miles of Forest Park's legendary 80+ mile trail system, while the half marathon (13.1 miles) is available for runners not ready to commit to a full, and is open to walkers as well.
