Summer [Series] Starts in April

Spring has arrived, and that can mean only one thing – it’s time to start planning for summer. Fortunately, TRL has a way of making summer arrive early. That’s right, we simply pick a bunch of Summer Series races that start in the spring… instant summer! So just what is the Summer Series? The simplest [...]

Input Needed on 2016 Summer Series

Summer is still a ways off, but the time to start planning your summer running has arrived. One long-running tradition (ok, shorter-running as well, if you want to go with the pun) for the Lizards is the Summer Series. For the past dozen years or so, the club has selected a range of races in [...]

Here’s mud in your eye! Stumptown XC is coming!

It’s still only mid-august, but fall is just around the corner, and that means the mud-soaked Stumptown Cross Country Series can’t be far behind! The 2013 series features five races, varying in length from 5k to 10k for men and 5k to 6k for women (I call gender discrimination: why do we men have to [...]

A large contingent of Lizards turned out for the challenging and scenic Backyard Half on June 15th, testing their climbing skills and stamina, sustaining various wounds and cramps, and shaking up the Summer Series standings in the process.

The White Salmon Backyard Half is coming up on Saturday, June 15th, and man, is this a memorable event! Extremely scenic and challenging, [...]

Join the Lizard “team” at the Shamrock Run and save $4.00!

One of Portland’s biggest and oldest races is rapidly approaching. The 2013 Shamrock Run falls precisely on St. Patrick’s Day this year (Sunday, March 17th, for the Holiday challenged among us), so this annual festival of running, costumes, chowder, and beer should be especially lively.  It’s also the 35th anniversary edition, so maybe “lively” will [...]

No drafting allowed: The 2012 Cascadia Beer Mile Championships
