Also Ran – Part II

By Rohit Grover Halfway to a marathon, and not 40 yet. The Hop-Hop Half Marathon course is an out-and-back along the levee that separates Portland’s mile-wide Columbia River from the airport. If Shamrock was hilly, this was about as flat as it gets. I think we climbed up and down off the levee, once. The [...]

TRL Board Elections Coming Up

Were you aware that Team Red Lizard has a board of directors? And if you were aware that we have a board, do you know how the members of that board came to be? The current board is actually quite sizable, with 4 officers (President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer), as well as 8 directors [...]

Also Ran – Part I

Spooky Pub Run – Wed, Oct 25

Each week at 6pm on Wednesday evenings, Lizards gather at the Buffalo Gap in Johns Landing to run over the Sellwood Bridge and get in some mid-week miles. But once a year, we get crazy, and instead of making a left over the Sellwood Bridge, we turn RIGHT! I know… scary. And this year, on [...]

Pacing Details for Portland Marathon

Putting together pace teams for the Portland Marathon is no small matter, so a huge thank you to everyone who is helping organize and assist with pacing at the 2017 event.  Beth Carter, TRL’s Director of Pacing, has done a great job of getting plans together and ensuring we have folks to fill all of [...]

Portland Marathon Pacers Still Needed

October 8, 2017… the date of the Portland Marathon… and it’s coming up quickly! There have been some changes with race organization and the course, but one thing that hasn’t changed is that TRL is still providing pace teams for the race. And we still need some folks to help keep the pace for runners [...]
