About Gorham Savings Bank Maine Marathon

Portland’s Maine Marathon, Half Marathon and Marathon Relay is a spectacular event. The course is beautifully scenic thanks to the trails, parks and waterfront of its popular Back Bay area, 

Runners in all three races follow an out-and-back course that starts and finishes along the southern end of the Back Cove, the inner bay area near downtown Portland that’s a popular spot for running, walking and biking thanks to the paved trails that hug the shoreline virtually the entire way around.

The marathon is a qualifier for the Boston Marathon and features a moderately hilly out-and-back course.
