Old Port Half Marathon: It’s a summer destination event
It's Maine's second biggest road race with 4,200 entrants for many reasons, from a great course, to stunning scenery or just a chance to come home again

There will be more than two dozen half marathons in Maine in 2017, but the Shipyard Old Port Half Marathon is fast becoming the gold standard.

The 13.1-mile Portland race, now in its seventh year – with more than 4,200 entrants in Saturday’s half marathon and 5K – has become the second most popular running event in Maine behind the world famous TD Beach to Beacon 10K and its 6,500-plus runners.

And it’s popularity extends well beyond the Maine borders. The allure of Portland in the summer, the breathtaking views, the chance to visit friends and family and even perhaps for a lobster roll after the race, the race keeps growing for a lot of reasons.
