Coach Jim’s free marathon training run for Saturday, February 1

Coach Jim's group at the 2013 Eugene Marathon.

Coach Jim’s group at the 2013 Eugene Marathon.

Join Coach Jim this Saturday, February 1 (!) for a group run of up to 14 miles. The run starts and ends with a small loop, but it’s essentially an out-and-back and therefore easy to run less than 14 miles.

Check out the full route here.

When : Saturday, February 1 at 8a

Where: Starting at Lululemon Pearl at NW 12th & Couch

Paces: Range from about an 8:30 to about a 12:30/mile

From the Lululemon store, the group will run down Couch to the waterfront for a small loop north to NW 9th, back down NW 9th all the way along the Park Blocks and through PSU. Then it’s on to Terwilliger to Barbur and back. The out-and-back includes the loop, so the route will pass over Couch to Naito and along the waterfront, this time running south back to Couch.

About Author

We started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. We also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support local race organizers.
