A Signature Rose Festival Event

Are you ready to rock your run? Register today for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Portland Half Marathon and 10K. Part of the world’s most popular running series, participants will rock out along one of two routes – the choice is yours! Both 6.2-mile and 13.1-mile courses are surrounded by a variety of bands from Portland’s diverse music scene.
