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 [...]

2015 Summer Series Races

Yes, I know we just turned our clocks forward, most of us competed in one of the events at Shamrock Run (you know, the first real race of spring), and there is still a whole lotta spring before summer arrives… but TRL always makes summer arrive early by throwing some spring races into the annual [...]

Summer Sizzler s’appening Sunday, Sept 14

Summer isn’t over yet, but the unofficial end is less than a month away. No, I’m not talking about Labor Day… I’m talking about the true events we runners mark the seasons by.

Summer Series Race #2 – Carson Ridge Run May 17

The Summer Series hits the ground (I should probably say hills) running the first 3 races. This coming weekend’s race, the 6.7-mile Troutdale Trot, starts out with a pretty good climb. And for those who came out to the Stevenson to Carson Ridge 15k last year, you know it goes up, over and down a [...]

I’m not sure about you, but warm weather has me thinking about a long-running (ok, there are some short runs as well) TRL summer tradition – the Summer Series! The Summer Series is an opportunity to join your fellow Lizards [...]

Don’t know what the Summer Series is? The simple explanation: it is a friendly intra-club competition where we score member against member, depending who turns out for [...]

Summer Series Grand Finale: The Dual Duel This Thursday

With Top Ten spots for men and women still up for grabs, the final event of the 2013 TRL Summer Series is only a few days away. The Dual Duel track relay is coming up on Thursday evening at the Catlin Gabel School track. As a new twist this year, the Summer Series will end [...]
