The first 8 miles is what Coach Jim is calling a “Tour of Alameda” – because you’ll run through some beautiful neighborhoods. The run is a large loop that travels along NE Fremont to NE 57th and back on roads that travel past Grant High School and through the Irvington District.
After a quick break at the Bakery, the pace group leaders will round their runners up again and head north for another 8 miles; an out-and-back that runs along the bluff along Willamette Blvd.
Bring your own hydration and nutrition, dress in layers, and stick with your pace group!
Where: Grand Central Bakery at 714 N. Fremont St.
What time: The run starts at 8a, be there by 7:45a at the latest
Distance: 16 miles, split into two runs of 8 miles each.
