The 41st Portland Marathon and 3rd Annual Portland Marathon Half hit the streets this morning. The 26.2 mile route started downtown, went over bridges, and wound through North, Northwest and Southwest Portland.
The marathon is unique in that it features more than 83 bands and entertainers at 53 locations along the way.
Seventeen TriMet bus routes were rerouted, and MAX service experienced some delays for passengers.
Additionally, bridge traffic was disrupted. The Broadway Bridge will continue to have an eastbound lane closed until 3:00 p.m.
