Coach Jim’s group at the 2013 Eugene Marathon.

Whether you’re training for a spring marathon or half marathon – or just looking for a group to run with this weekend – check out Coach Jim’s run for this Saturday, February 22.

This week’s run includes a 2-loop route. You can do either of the loops with the group, or the entire distance. The first loop is 8.6 miles and the second is 8.5 miles, for a total of 17.1 miles.

The group ranges from 30-80 people usually, with paces led by pace group leaders from about an 8:30/mile to a 12:30/mile. No matter if you know anyone in the group or not, you’re invited!

The run starts and ends at Pizza Roma (owned by a runner!) at 4715 SE Woodstook Blvd in Portland. Check out the routes online here:

Section 1 – out and back to Mt. Tabor

Section 2 – loop through Sellwood, Eastmoreland and Woodstock

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.
