Portland Coastal Marathon experiences
Hello,

I’m a newbie in the ultra running world and looking for a first ultra experience in January or February 2019.
Are there any runners who have participated in the Portland Coastal Marathon. It probably doesn’t qualify as a proper “ultra” as it is a marathon, but looking at the website it looks more like a ultra than a “normal” marathon.

Thank you.

Hi,

It looks like this is a marathon distance event. However, trail marathons often also appeal to ultra runners and it would be a great part of your training for an ultra. We don’t list the event on our race pages, as it is not an ultra. However, you can search for other events by date, name or location in our ‘find events’ section if this interests you. If any of our members have run the Portland Coastal Marathon, then hopefully they will comment here.

Good luck and let us know if we can help in any other ways.
