Speaking of training for a spring marathon … even though the PMC runs are done for this year after Saturday, Coach Jim’s runs continue through the winter until the 2015 PMC.
Coach Jim’s runs are very similar to the PMC: free and open to everyone (whether or not you’re training for a marathon). Coach Jim’s runs are also led by experienced pace group leaders and are designed with a bathroom break. Longer runs are split into two loops so that those needing less distance can still join in and not have to do their entire return run solo.
The full schedule will be posted soon right here on the Run Oregon blog! Coach Jim’s first run will be on Saturday, October 11, 2014.
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.
