Newport Marathon (or) Reviews


5.0 Stars from 4 Runners

Review

Beautiful race with great support. The weather was near perfect, starting in low fifties, finishing around 58. Oregon coast is unique and wonderful, definitely worth the trip. Also, the course is fast.


Race Tips

Be aware that the last mile goes up about 65 feet, which can seem daunting after 25 miles.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Embarcadero Resort is a great place to stay and right at finish line.


5 / 5 Stars


  Scenic out-and-back course

Review

Extremely easy access to starting line porta-potties--the best of the 19 marathons I have run. I loved the scenic out-and-back course. I also enjoyed the town and the spaghetti dinner.


Race Tips

If I were to run this race again, I would ease off my pacing through the first four miles through town due to hills and turns. The rest of the course is relatively straight and flat. The incline during the last half-mile was not as drastic as I anticipated; it cost me about 12 seconds during my final full-mile split.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

We rented a house in Newport, which provided easy access to race shuttles and finish area.

This marathon is well supported, lots of aid stations, wonderful encouraging crowd, beautiful scenic course. Worth every penny you spend on it, and it's very reasonably priced!


Race Tips

Often times foggy at start but warms up and clears off quickly. I have raced this 2x and had wonderful experiences.


Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

The Holiday Inn offers and early am continental breakfast with everything you need. They also offer a marathon discount. It's close to the bay so a little removed from the town but nice and quiet. The marathon shuttle does stop at this hotel!!


5 / 5 Stars
