The Portland 10 Miler course is an exciting tour of Portland, Maine. Starting in Payson Park, runners will follow a semi-circle along the water in Back Cove. Running along Baxter Boulevard, the course joins the Back Cove trail and passes through Back Cove Park before turning east. Runners will then pass along the water side of the Eastern Promenade to the east and south. At mile 5, runners will turn back to the north and west, encountering the course’s only significant elevation as they head up and down Munjoy Hill on the Eastern Promenade. The route then joins the Back Cove Trail again before heading back into Payson Park for the finish and race after-party! Registered runners receive a long-sleeve tech shirt, and finishers receive a custom-designed finishers medal. Prizes will be awarded to the top three men and women overall, and by age group.
