The Night Before Cross Country

By Kristen Dedeaux ‘Twas the night before XC, thus begins our story Not a runner was resting, not even Sir Torrey. The singlets were hung from the clotheslines with care, In hopes that by morning they’d be ready to wear. The harriers were wide awake in their nests, While visions of hay bales had them [...]

Thanksgiving Trail Run in Tryon

Thanksgiving… a day when overeating is on almost everyone’s menu. Fortunately, runners are smart. No, we will probably still overeat, but we will at least get some exercise beforehand so we feel better about ourselves. For those runners not wanting to spend a chunk of change on one of the numerous turkey trots around the [...]

Lizard Board Elections This Winter

It isn’t often that the political drama of candidates vying for the U.S. Presidency overlaps with the usual lack of drama that surrounds elections for the TRL board of directors, but that is exactly what is about to happen this fall/winter. And who doesn’t love a lack of drama?!? OK, I suppose there could be [...]

And what better way to motivate yourself [...]

The designs for the building renovations look great, but there is also a commitment of funds (in [...]

Volunteers Needed for Portland Marathon Aid Station

By Melissa Cox Each year, just before the Broadway Bridge, runners are greeted by the enthusiasm and support of the Team Red Lizard aid station. Located near mile 24 at North Interstate Avenue and North Clark Avenue, we need all hands on deck to help out marathoners as they make that turn towards the finish [...]

Portland Marathon Pacers Needed

The first weekend in October holds a special day for Portlanders and Team Red Lizard. Sunday, October 4, 2015 is the Portland Marathon, and that means TRL will be all over the place – organizing and staffing the aid station at Mile 24, as well as providing pace teams for event participants trying to run [...]
