The route from Road Runner Sports in Tualatin offers a neighborhood tour of Tualatin, using residential streets (read: shaded) and lower-traffic roads for most of the route. Best of all, there is a Panera Bread and a Starbucks right in the same shopping center as RRS for your post-run snack!
Remember to bring your own hydration and some food for your run, whether you prefer gel, blocks, or good old fashioned e-caps and orange slices. A hat and sunscreen are a must, too, so you can actually enjoy your holiday weekend instead of nursing a sunscreen.
Here’s the rest of the schedule:
All runs are on Saturdays and start promptly at 8a, so be there by 7:45 at the very latest for instructions and to use the restroom before you start. Click on the location for a Google map showing you where to go. For directions, click on “Get Directions” and enter your starting address.
