Portland Marathon Clinic Training Run for August 29, 2015

This week's run is 16 miles (no more!) from the Tualatin Road Runner Sports. Check out the route here. (Keep in mind the map shows a 20-miler, this Saturday the pace group leaders will turn around at 8.) Next weekend (September 5) is the Brunch Run. If you don't have your tickets yet, make sure to get them online or at the run this Saturday! You must have a ticket to attend the Brunch Run, which is a point-to-point 20-miler with delicious brunch waiting for you at the finish!

Speaking of pace group leaders, remember that they are volunteers! So be sure to give them many thanks – maybe a Starbucks card or even a pair of running socks are a great way to show your appreciation.

Remember to bring: sunscreen, hydration, nutrition, dry clothes for after the run, and Vaseline or BodyGlide (or your anti-chafing solution of choice). There will be aid stations at 4, 8 and 12 miles.

Where:Road Runner Sports at 7063 SW Nyberg St. in Tualatin

What time: The run starts at 8a. Be there no later than 7:45, and remember there is only one bathroom at RRS so you will want to plan accordingly

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.
