Who’s ready for some hills?
This Saturday, Coach Jim’s free marathon training run climbs the hills of Terwilliger from Road Runner Sports down to Barbur Boulevard, a 6-mile one-way trip to knock out 12 miles for your training. If your training is for a spring marathon, you’ll also want to join in on the 8-mile run, which cuts through NW Portland to Naito and then takes a lovely tour of the waterfront on the Steel-Hawthorne loop.
Remember, these runs are free and open to everyone! Bring your own hydration and nutrition.
The training program is set up with the ORRC Vernonia Marathon on April 12, 2015. Coach Jim’s experienced pace group leaders – all volunteers – will be there to keep you on pace and on course.
