Shelly Beckers leads your easy run on Thursday nights from PRC-Beaverton. All paces welcome. This group is great for runners and walkers and people who do a mix of the two. Routes vary. Summer months will see this group us Fanno Creek Trail as much as possible; alternative neighborhood routes are in play during winter and spring when the trail is flooded. Expect 4–6 miles. All are welcome to join, just no dogs please. This group run is free of charge like all PRC group runs (https://portlandrunningcompany.com/group-runsevents/).
Your host Mike P. will lead you on an easy-ish run in the neighborhood or around the waterfront. After the run we retire to our favorite local bar, Rogue's Eastside Pub & Pilot Brewery, for libations and yakkety-yak. You'll come back. (Rogue generously donates the first round each week.) No sign up necessary, but if you haven't joined a PRC run before, the host will have you sign an e-waiver beforehand. Ages 21 and over for this run, please. Also, no dogs. (Sorry, we love 'em, but there have been incidents....) Cost: $0, unless you want more than one beer or some food--that's on you.
Run like a boss with the bosses. Portland Running Company owners Dave and Paula Harkin lead this run from our PDX store on Saturday mornings. It's a long-ish run; expect most of the group to do 10–12 miles. All are welcome. Come do your own thing if the group is running longer or shorter than you'd like. Routes will include the waterfront, Mt. Tabor, and more. Like all of our group runs (https://portlandrunningcompany.com/group-runsevents/) this one is free and open to anyone. You may need to sign a waiver if you've never run with PRC before. Note: If Dave and Paula have to put on a race or have another conflict, another PRC staff member may substitute on occasion. This run meets in front of the store. The store opens at 10 AM on Saturday.
Portland Running Company leads a long run every Sunday morning from Kenny & Zuke's Bagelworks. After the run we reconvene at the bagelry for coffee and recovery food. We decide the route(s) on the spot; there is almost always a contingent heading into Forest Park to hit the trails. Other routes we like include Terwilliger/Council Crest, Mount Tabor, and the Sellwood Bridge Loop. Distances vary, but most folks run for about two hours. Free and open to all, like all of PRC's Group Runs (https://portlandrunningcompany.com/group-runsevents/). If you've never run with PRC before, you may need to sign a waiver beforehand. (No dogs, please.)
