In addition to our scheduled runs, we have the following activities:
On the first Friday of every month, club members get together at the Lucky Labrador Beer Hall at 1945 NW Quimby for a casual evening out. People show up anywhere from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm. See the message board for more information. It’s always a good idea to check the message board before attending as the venue can change. Note that in mid 2010 we moved from Roots Brewing back to the Lucky Lab (NOT the SE Lucky Lab).
TRL members volunteer on the third Saturday of every month at the Blanchet House, a local establishment providing daily meals to those in need. Members help with dinner preparation and service. Volunteers are invited to stay afterwards for dinner. Sign up via the message board. More information.
TRL offers members an opportunity to compete against each other for fun and prizes during a series of races each year.
The Tour de Goose is a multi-stage running event fashioned after and taking place during the Tour de France (July each year). Runners of all ages and speeds are most welcome. You don’t have to be fast to win! No matter what your running speed, you will have a shot at winning Stages and the whole Tour itself! No kidding. The Tour de Goose is primarily about fun and friendship, with plenty of running involved too. There will be beverages, prizes, awards, and an ending barbeque party. More information.
TRL fields teams in our annual cross country series in the Portland area each Fall. Open and Masters teams are entered. More information.
Since 2002 TRL has been the official pacers of the Portland Marathon. In addition, TRL provides the Portland Marathon Mile 24 aid station and provides a booth at the marathon expo. More information.
TRL volunteers with the Special Olympics by helping to organize and staff the regional qualifying track meet for the Portland area. More information.
On the second Saturday of every month, TRL and the Multnomah County Animal Shelter partner up to exercise dogs seeking a permanent home. Meet at the Lake Oswego PETCO (333 S. State St/Hwy 43) at 9:00 a.m., meet the dogs, and take them out for a run along Old River Road. Dogs are available for more interaction from 10-noon in the PETCO parking lot. More information.
