It was our sincere hope that in originally postponing the Portland 10 Miler to September that we would be able to host the event in 2020. We have have put in many hours formulating event protocols and safety measures. But, we have come to the painful conclusion as a staff and with the City of Portland that it is simply not safe or realistic to host an event of this size ten weeks from now.
All registrants will be automatically rolled into next year’s Portland 10 Miler which is scheduled for Sunday, April 25, 2021 pending permit approval. There is no further action needed on your part.
As always, the safety and health of our runners, volunteers and staff is our top priority. We’re thankful for each and every one of our participants and your support and understanding as we work towards sunnier days on the road together again.
After the race, come join us at the Payson Park finish area to celebrate your accomplishment! Portland craft brewery Rising Tide will be serving up their delicious beers — the first one is on us! — to all runners over 21. Athlete food will be available, including fruit, bagels and granola bars. We’ll also have some of Portland’s tastiest food trucks selling on site so you can refuel properly, all while enjoying the park and the view of Back Cove. Family and friends are welcome at the after-party, too!
The Portland 10 Miler course is an exciting tour of Portland, Maine. Starting in Payson Park, runners will follow a semi-circle along the water in Back Cove. Running along Baxter Boulevard, the course joins the Back Cove trail and passes through Back Cove Park before turning east. Runners will then pass along the water side of the Eastern Promenade to the east and south. At mile 5, runners will turn back to the north and west, encountering the course’s only significant elevation as they head up and down Munjoy Hill on the Eastern Promenade. The route then joins the Back Cove Trail again before heading back into Payson Park for the finish and race after-party!
