Does Your New Year’s Resolution Include Stumptown?

By Jacob Buckmaster With the end of another year, we are again reflecting on the end of another fantastic Stumptown XC series. This was the sixth year TRL has hosted the XC series in Portland and it was our biggest year yet. We broke records for attendance and raised a large amount of money for [...]

Time to Purge Before the New Year

Wildwood Trail in Forest Park. Without a doubt the single greatest resource we have within the city boundary. Having the ability to run 30 miles from point-to-point on a soft surface trail in the middle of the forest, while only being minutes from civilization is part of what makes Portland the greatest city in the [...]

This Saturday’s event at Fernhill Park should provide the perfect opportunity to do that. With the women [...]

Spooky Fulton Run – Wed, Oct 29

By Mark Mochon Gather ‘round my children. It will soon be time to muster up the courage to venture into the graveyard and run with the dead.
