Stumptown Cross – Let’s Get Virtual!

Fall is in the air, which usually means a bunch of crazy runners show up to Portland Metro area parks to run across wet grass or soft surface trails in an effort to see how they stack up against the competition.  And for many, it is more about the comradery and team pride.  Whatever it [...]

TRL Member Profile: Edward Liljeholm

We recently caught up with Edward Liljeholm, who is an essential worker, runner, and has been a TRL member since 2017. How long have you been running and why did you start running?

By Rick Lovett When TRL conducted its first virtual race, the Stumptown Quarantine 5K in May, interest was overwhelming.

Being Black in America: a personal story by Garland Days

I love my life, my job, and my family. I enjoy participating in TRL running events and being on the TRL Board. Do I like being Black in America? Eh…not always. Like most Blacks, I constantly live with the fear that I will be unfairly judged because of the color of my skin, which means [...]
