About The Club

Team Red Lizard (TRL) is a non-profit running club based in the Portland, Oregon metropolitan area.

While TRL is a running club, many of our members prefer a flair for the dramatic and enjoy numerous other activities such as mountain climbing, backcountry skiing, adventure races, and Ironman competitions to name a few.

TRL also provides members with opportunities to help others; from working at a local soup kitchen one Saturday each month, to organizing many aspects of the Special Olympics Regional Qualifying meet, and providing runners to lead pace groups for the Portland Marathon, TRL seeks out opportunities to give back to the community.
