Only Two Weeks Until Summer Series Race 3 and Awards Dinner

Lizards hanging out after the Willamette Mission Trail Run

Race #2 in the 2017 Summer Series is in the books, and so far, it has been a pretty good couple races. Things kicked off with the Dogwood Dash 5k on April 8, and race #2 was a modified course at Willamette Mission due to high water flooding out the part of the park we usually race in. But the fact the course was different and the 10k was shortened to 5.5 miles didn’t put a damper on the day. Still lots of fun racing a cross country style course and hanging out at the park for a post-race BBQ. Run Wild Adventures does a great job putting on events, so despite the last minute course change, I think everyone who showed up had a great time.

Race #3 in the Summer Series is coming up in only 2 weeks. The Lake Run 10k in on Saturday, May 13. The race starts and finishes at Millenium Park and does a loop around the lake – so a scenic course, with a few hundred feet on gain as you head up and over the view point on South Shore Blvd. Registration link and course details are available on the event web site. One thing you should note is that the registration fee goes up on May 1, so register today!

And if having a Summer Series race wasn’t enough to fill your schedule on Saturday, May 13 – that is also the date of the First Annual Team Red Lizard Awards event. This should be a fun evening of food, hanging out, enjoying photos from the past year, and celebrating some accomplishments of Lizards recognized by their peers for outstanding performances and giving back to the club and running community. The event starts at 5:30pm and is going to be held in the Heritage Room at Bridgeport Brewing (and yes, that means there will be plenty of beer available to pair with the food we will be serving).

This should be a fun evening, so plan to join us. You can still get tickets for this event by clicking this link, but dot it today, since ticket sales end on May 2.

Sounds like everyone ought to be blocking out the entire chunk of Saturday, May 13 and plan to join TRL for a morning race around Lake Oswego, followed by food, beer and awards at Bridgeport in the evening. Get signed up for both today!
