Miles in Chiles Track Series Returns February 3

Running a track race is very different from a road race, and can be a lot of fun. Miles in Chiles is a rare indoor track series that takes place each winter at the University of Portland’s Chiles Center, and as fun to spectate as they are to race.

There are two races this year, the first on February 3 and the second on February 10.

At the February 3 meet, there will be a 200m, an 800m, and a mile.

The February 10 meet will include a 400m, an 800m, and a mile.

These are all-comer meets, and the timing will depend on the number of entrants for each distance (and how many heats are needed). The first heats will start at 7p and go from there. You’ll find runners ranging from high school track runners to professional athletes at these races.

Registration is $5 per event and participants are asked to please pay in cash. Registration will be open at the main entrance to the Chiles Center from 6p – 6:40p each night, after which time heats will be coordinated.

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.
