Tacoma native wins Eugene Marathon

Jaymee Marty, a 45-year-old Tacoma native, won the Eugene Marathon on Sunday.

Marty finished the 26.2-mile race in 2 hours, 48 minutes and 55 seconds. It was her 20th marathon and her first victory.

She told the Eugene Register-Guard that she opted out of running the Boston Marathon to focus on the Eugene race.

“That was the goal here,” said Marty. “And when you run the times that I run, it’s all about who shows up, so I got lucky today. I knew there were a lot of fast women on the list. I thought (my chances) were 50-50. Like I said, I got lucky.”

Marty, an ecologist living in Sacramento, graduated from Clover Park High in 1985.
