Portland Marathon expects to sell out on or before August 20th
August 9, 2012 – The 41st Annual Portland Marathon has announced that its 26.2-mile Marathon event is nearly sold out. Scheduled for Sunday, October 7, 2012, the Portland Marathon ranked “Best Marathon in the Northwest,” with the “Best Swag in the Northwest” in Competitor magazine’s “Best of 2011.”
The Portland Marathon's other running and walking events held during Marathon Weekend, including the 10K DownHill Dash, the 10K Portland Family Walk and the Kids’ Fun Run & Family Festival, will open for registration on August 15, 2012. Spaces are limited and will sell out quickly.
Les Smith, Portland Marathon Event Director, said:
"We expect to sell out the Marathon on or before August 20th. Our Half Marathon sold out in January! Based on last year we know the shorter events will sell out in a limited number of days as well."
"We are pleased about this sell-out process. It helps our charities. It helps us to have a better event,” he added.
Those still interested in participating in either the Half or full Marathons after event registration closes on August 20th, can do so by helping one of the Portland Marathon’s official charities fund raise. The last day for charity entries is September 15, 2012.

Chazeray, GoingBackTo180 and I are doing the Half marathon. I want to say that Papphem is also registered for the Half, but I can't swear to it.
Gaye, are you planning on doing the 10K Walk? I think Bill may be interested in doing it again this year if you are.
