Coach Jim’s free marathon training run for Saturday, February 8

Coach Jim's Elite Runners in Training at the 2013 Vancouver, USA marathon.

Coach Jim's Elite Runners in Training at the 2013 Vancouver, USA marathon.

This weekend, Coach Jim's free marathon training run is made up of two segments. You can run the entire distance with him, or join in on either loop - this makes it great for those of you not currently training for a spring marathon.

The total distance is 18 miles – the group’s first 18-miler of the season. The first loop is 8 miles and winds through NE Portland through some historically significant residential neighborhoods. It’s fun to check out all the cool houses! The second loop is a 10-mile out-and-back, up to University of Portland for 5 miles and then 5 miles back.

When: Saturday, February 8, 2014 at 8a

Where: Grand Central at 714 N. Fremont

Paces range from about 8:30-12:30/mile.

Please do not park in the Grand Central parking lot. They let the group use their restrooms and it’s nice of us to leave spaces for their other customers! There is plenty of street parking around the area.

About Kelly Barten (1152 Articles)
I started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because I felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. I also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support LOCAL race organizers. I'm a Creighton Bluejay (undergrad) and an Oregon Duck (Sports Marketing MBA), and I live in Tigard with my husband and two kids. My "real job" is working for an incredibly awesome math textbook company doing marketing and production.
