  • Did the Portland Half Marathon in 2019

    Great job by the new producer of this event. The new course was a vast improvement over the old Portland Marathon route. Scenic and through neighborhoods where the crowd support was surprisingly good. Lots of goodies with this race, including excellent free pics. I'd highly recommend it.
