Free Group Run @ PRC’s Run Pub on New Year’s Day

If you’re in town on January 1, come run and walk with us at Portland Running Company’s new location at 2258 NW Raleigh St – the Run Pub! The run will start at 11a and go for however long you want to run, and then you can hang out afterward and enjoy a pint. RSVP on facebook here.

“Wait. What’s Run Pub?” you may ask …

Well, here’s how PRC describes it:

Run Pub is a public house for runners located inside Portland Running Company and opening in December 2019. Serving up the world’s best running gear and Oregon’s top brews. Run Pub combines the community feel of a great local running store with the social ambiance of a new world pub. Excellent service, unparalleled local running knowledge, and premium Oregon beers.

Here’s how I describe it: absolute genius. It’s a place for runners to hang out with other runners, enjoy a beer, check out running gear and have access to the experts from PRC who not only know the details on the gear, but have years of running and racing under their belts and “get” runners (and walkers). It’s a place where you can talk about your IT Band and share stress fracture horror stories, conspire to train for a BQ or convince a friend to sign up for a half marathon.

Anyway, back to the group run on New Year’s Day – a Resolution Run group run.

The routes and final details are still being figured out, but there will be multiple distance options including a half-mile out-and-back perfect for those of you who are new to running, returning after injury or time off, or want to be able to vary your pace and not worry about getting lost or left behind. I’ll be running this option, so if you’re new to running you’ll at least have me to run with! (My comfortable paces are from 9:30-walking, as long as whatever happened to my calf is better by then.)

Before the run, be sure to join the Run Pub club on Strava. Every mile you log earns you 6¢, so for every 100 miles you run, you’ll earn a $6 pint! (Miles reset each quarter, and you can only redeem for one pint on one day.)

Bring a snack for afterwards (if you need one) and warm clothes to change into when you’re done. If you plan to get a pint, bring your ID! And come ready to start your year off on the right foot with a few friendly miles.

 

About Kelly Barten (1146 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.
