Our Activities


About The Club

Team Red Lizard (TRL) is a non-profit running club based in the Portland, Oregon metropolitan area. But running isn’t all we do. Many of our members enjoy other activities such as mountain climbing, backcountry skiing, adventure races, and Ironman competitions, to name a few.

TRL also provides members with opportunities to help others; from working at a local soup kitchen one Saturday each month, to organizing many aspects of the Special Olympics Regional track meet, and leading pace groups for the Portland Marathon. TRL seeks out opportunities to give back to the community.
