Visit the lights of Peacock Lane with a group run

One of the impressive light displays on Peacock Lane.

There are two free Peacock Lane group runs planned (that I know of) this month. If you're not familiar with Peacock Lane, check it out here. It's basically one street in SE Portland near SE 39th and Belmont that has Griswold-worth Christmas displays; and on December 18-20, it's pedestrian-only. Which makes it perfect to visit on a run. The Red Lizards/Foot Traffic NE are hosting a run on Friday, December 18 and Portland Running Company has one scheduled for Sunday, December 20.

Red Lizard/Foot Traffic Peacock Lane Group Run

When: Friday, December 18, 2015

What time: The run starts at 6p. I suggest arriving by 5:40 as parking in that area can be tight. There is a potluck following the run at Foot Traffic.

Where: Foot Traffic at 4020 NE Fremont in Portland

Register: You can RSVP and list what you’ll bring to the potluck (if you choose to stay) through the event’s facebook page. This is a free group run.

The route itself isn’t posted, but it’s about a five-mile out-and-back. The group runs to Peacock Lane, walks up and down to enjoy the show, and then runs back.


Portland Running Company Peacock Lane Group Run

When: Sunday, December 20, 2015

What time: The run starts at 5p. Be there by about 4:45 to be sure you can find parking.

Where: Portland Running Company at 800 SE Grand Ave. in Portland

Register: You can RSVP on the event’s facebook page here. This is a free group run.

This run is 3-4 miles; PRC is also collecting children’s warm coats, hats, mittens, scarves, and the like, for the students at Cascade Locks School. Dutch Bros. will also be on hand with coffee and cocoa … and (Joe Dudman), there will be cookies.

About Kelly Barten (1152 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.
