24-Mile Aid Station
Once again, Team Red Lizard will be operating the infamous 24-Mile Aid Station at the 2012 Portland Marathon on Sunday Oct. 7. As always, our aid station will be located 24 miles from the start (hey, why not?) at North Interstate Avenue and North Clark Avenue, 1/4 mile west of the Broadway bridge.
At this point in the marathon most of the runners and walkers are running low on energy. That’s where we come in. Can you spell HIGH ENERGY? Can you cheer like a maniac and hand out cups of water to thirsty participants while the music is cranking? Then we need you on that wall! We need you on that Aid Station!

TRL Pacers will once again have a booth at the Portland Marathon Sports and Fitness Expo at the Hilton Hotel (SW 6th Ave and SW Salmon St.) in downtown Portland. Times/dates will be 11AM-8PM on Friday Oct. 5 and 9AM-7PM on Saturday Oct. 6.
At the booth, we’ll be passing out the TRL pace bands that show the “even effort” splits for lots of paces. We’ll also answer pacing and course questions from participants. It’s a great opportunity to talk marathons with tons of very nice people. Some have lots of marathon experience and some have none. So you get all kinds of questions. The one constant is the positive energy from everyone. It’s a blast!
