Coach Jim’s free group long run for Saturday, March 5, 2016

Get ready for 20 (or 12 or 8, as the case may be) this Saturday! This weekend's free marathon and half marathon training run offers two loops. The first of 12 miles will climb up Terwilliger and the second of 8 miles will tour the Waterfront and include the lovely Tillicum Bridge.

When: Saturday, March 5, 2016

What time: The run starts at 8a. Please arrive at least 10 minutes early so the run can start on time.

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

How far & how fast: Exact paces will vary but there are usually groups training for a 3:30 – 5:00 marathon finish time.

Bring your own hydration and nutrition, dress for the weather, and come ready to make some new friends! Please note, pace group leaders are experienced runners and would love to answer any questions you have about pacing, fueling, recovery, etc. They’re basically awesome. And they’re also volunteers, so say “thanks” after the run.

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.
