This week at the Portland Marathon Clinic, groups will run 16 or 20 miles starting from Road Runner Sports in NW Portland.
This run is free and open to everyone. The groups are led by experienced pace group leaders and organized by marathon goal time. You might wonder why they run slower than marathon goal pace - this is because PMC adheres to the RRCA-supported "long, slow distance" training model.
This week's route can be viewed here.
Where: Road Runner Sports at 29 NW 23rd Ave.
Parking: From the PMC website: “You can park in the Uptown Center upper parking lot or the associated parking garage, disregard the time limit signs.”
What time: The run starts at 8a. Be there no later than 7:45.
