Coach Jim’s free marathon training for Saturday, February 28, 2015

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.

When: Saturday, February 28, 2015

Where: Road Runner Sports downtown location at 29 NW 23rd Place in Portland

What time: The run starts at 8a, be there between 7:30a and 7:45a

Distance: 20 miles total, split into a run of 12 and a run of 8

You can RSVP and meet other runners through Coach Jim’s facebook page, too.




About Kelly Barten (1021 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.
