Subject:RE: Rock 'n' Roll Portland Half Marathon : Official Thread
It's an interesting course that will take you through the trendy and somewhat bohemian Hawthorne District before heading north and going through the historic Laurelhurst District where I live, then heading back into downtown. You're going to be running up hill from ~mile 4 to ~mile 7, but it will be mostly downhill after that.
Weather should be perfect. Probably mid 50's to start with a high in the mid 70's in the afternoon. We're experiencing a very rare long stretch of dry spring weather. Enjoy your visit.
