Sunday Long Run

Eight to 12 miles (with longer options), followed by coffee, food, and conversation.

Tuesday Track

Tuesdays, 6:15 PM
3-7 Miles, Synthetic Track

Coached track Workouts happen every Tuesday night at Duniway Track. Plan on arriving early enough to be warmed up and ready for strides with the group at 6:15 sharp. Many runners warm up together on the track or surrounding paths. Come with your own workout plan, or a pick from a selection of weakly workouts provided by coach Rick Lovett.

Goose Hill Climb

Thursdays, 6 PM
6-7 Miles, Roads & Trails

Starts a half-block north of the Goose Hollow Inn, at the corner of SW 19th Ave and SW Madison St. Runners slower than 8:00 per mile start at 6:00. Faster runners start at 6:15, so the two groups converge at the summit. The fall/winter route runs roads up to Council Crest. The spring/summer route takes (mostly) trails to Pittock Mansion.

Friday Track

Fridays, 6:15 PM
3-7 Miles, Synthetic Track

Same basic protocol as Tuesdays, but smaller, more intimate group. Workouts are individualized, based on who shows up and what they need. Perfect for those looking for some individualized coaching.

Sunday Long Run

Sundays, 9 AM
8-12 Miles (with longer Options)

Locations vary, allowing runners to explore different parts of the Metro area each week. The base distance is about 12 miles, but options are available for runnng shorter, or (for those peaking for marathons) up to 20-22 miles. Each week’s route is posted a few days in advance on the TRL Community Facebook page.
