Our Start/Finish line is at beautiful Esther Short Park in the heart of downtown Vancouver, Washington.

The 2015 Vancouver USA Marathon Weekend is coming!! The courses are true Pacific Northwest gems, highlighting the best that our community has to offer, including historic sites and the mighty Columbia River. The event includes a 3-day outdoor Active Expo, along with the Vancouver Saturday Market, The Summer Brewfest, and all VUM ceremonies and festivities commencing in the same area, Esther Short Park. Don’t miss this outrageous race across the river with all the amenities: a commemorative t-shirt, a finisher medal, great food, beverages, goodies, a fabulous view and so much more!
