Be Aware. Plan Ahead.

Drivers are encouraged to adjust travel time within and around the race course.

  • The Rock ‘n’ Roll Portland Half Marathon will bring more than 10,000 runners and walkers to Portland, in addition to tens of thousands of spectators, family and friends.
  • To get the most out of your weekend and minimize stress, be aware of the road closures in your area and plan ahead for an alternate route or added travel time.
  • Join the festivities! Portland residents are encouraged to visit the free Health & Fitness Expo at Oregon Convention Center, volunteer during race weekend and/or line the course to cheer runners.

Interactive Road Closure Map-Coming Soon!

This map outlines the road closures, highlights alternate routes and provides access information for popular destinations which will be affected by road closures during the race. At most points along the course, pedestrians and bicyclists may cross the course during safe gaps in runners. Please follow the discretion of a traffic controller if present. Google Maps does NOT take into account the road closures on race day. To request assistance with alternate directions please contact the Rock ‘n’ Roll marathon community relations team by completing the community contact form.

Road Closures

Most road closures and detours will be in effect between the hours of 7:00 am and 12:45 pm. Between 7:00 and 7:45 am Police and event personnel will implement a soft closure along the entire race course. The races begin at 8:00 am, and streets will reopen on a rolling basis as soon as the last participant has passed and all course support materials have been removed. At most points along the course, pedestrians and bicyclists may cross the course during safe gaps in runners. Please follow the discretion of a traffic controller if present. Streets along the earlier miles of the route will open earlier than roads along the end of the route. Please review the road closure grid and course map for more information. Residents and businesses located near the race course are urged to plan ahead and to be aware of road closure schedules and alternate access routes.

No Parking

Streets along the race course will be marked with No Parking signs.  Vehicles in violation of these posted signs will be courtesy towed.  For more information on No Parking please click here. For information on locating towed cars call 503-823-0044.
