What we're about

Portland Trail Runners is a beginner friendly running group that meets every Saturday morning and every Tuesday evening in and around the Portland area. We love exploring all that Portland has to offer, including the trails of Forest Park, Tryon Creek, the waterfront area, Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge, and whatever new trails we can find!

We're also huge fans of our city's world-class coffee and brewery scene, so if you've got suggestions for a post-run hangout spot, join us and share!
