Race Update: May 18, 2021
We are now very optimistic that we will be able to host the Portland 10 Miler in-person and as scheduled on Sunday, September 12th, 2021.
If you are registered and should you for any reason wish to not race this year and receive your full purchase value as a credit to the 2022 Portland 10 Miler or another event on our calendar, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Race credit requests must be submitted by August 12th, 30 days prior to the event and are valid for two years from the date they are issued.
We’re thankful for each and every one of our participants and your support and understanding as we work towards getting back out on the road together later this year!
Our first priority is accommodating all deferred 2020 race registrants. Should our capacity limit allow for it, we will re-open registration for a limited number of spots at that time.
A portion of each registration fee will be donated directly to our non-profit partner Spurwink who provides behavioral health and education services for children, adults and families.
In addition to donating a portion of every registration fee to Spurwink, we encourage our runners to set their own fundraising goal for Spurwink, or any charity close to their hearts. By setting up a fundraiser on Crowdrise.com, participants can raise money directly for their chosen cause!
There are no fundraising minimums or requirements.
|September 4 – October 31||$55|
|November 1 – January 31||$60|
|February 1 – March 31||$65|
|April 1 – Race Day (on sale soon)||$70|

Shirts & Medals
All registered participants will receive a long-sleeve tech shirt with Portland 10 Miler artwork on the chest, sleeve and back. All finisher’s will receive a finisher’s medal.

We are not able to offer refunds. However we do offer any registered runners the opportunity to request a race credit for your full value. Once issued, these Eventbrite Credits appear as a balance of your Eventbrite account. The credit balance can then be applied to the purchase price of a new ticket to any event on our calendar within two years of the day we issue the credit. Race credits may be requested up to 30 days before the event in which you are registered. Race credits will not be granted if a request is made less than 30 days prior to the event.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I get a refund?
We do not offer refunds. However we do offer Eventbrite Credits for other events on our calendar.
Can I defer my registration?
No, we do not roll over your registration automatically to the next year’s event. However the credit that we issue can be used towards the purchase of that same event whenever registration re-opens for the following year’s event.
Can I transfer my registration to another person?
No, we do not offer transfers. However, when you request and receive a race credit, you can use that credit to purchase a new ticket for another participant if you choose to do so.
How long is my Eventbrite Credit good for?
The balance of your registration is good for up to two years from the date it was issued, at which point it then expires.
When can I request an Eventbrite Credit?
All credit requests must be submitted to email@example.com no later than 30 days prior to the event.
Extreme Weather Policy
Our events are held rain or shine. However, there is always the potential for extreme or severe weather conditions. Race organizers will do as much as we can to ensure the experience is as safe as possible. In the event of severe weather, the race may be delayed as race officials consult public safety officers. If there is more than a short delay, if conditions persist, or the forecast calls for extreme weather, race officials reserve the right to alter or cancel the race. We do not schedule “rain dates”. Any decision to cancel an event is done as an absolute last resort and is made collectively with local risk management, police, fire & rescue, and medical personnel as appropriate. In such situations, there will be NO REFUNDS as registrants accept any such risk of their entry free when signing up.
Please check the website, our Facebook page, and your email before the race for any changes or cancellations.
Post Race Beer Garden
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 flat, coastal course covers ten-miles of Portland’s most beautiful roads and paths along Back Cove, Munjoy Hill and the Eastern Promenade.
