NW PDX Trail Runners is an intermediate level (but beginner friendly!) running group that meets every Saturday at Lower Macleay in Forest Park, and usually mid-week somewhere else in the park. Originally started in February of 2013 by Danielle Spillman, the group itself has grown steadily since the beginning, although the Saturday morning runs always seem to average about 15-20 runners.
The group is usually about half regulars, half newbies, so don’t worry! You’ll almost certainly find someone to run with, as we all run at different paces.
We’re all about trail running, camping, coffee, breakfast burritos, socializing over beers, exploring Portland and the surrounding areas, talking about gear, *not* talking about gear, etc. If any of those things sound like fun to you, then come run with us!
We are an energizing, empowering, supportive Portland running group network, a great fit for new runners and those running between 3 and 5 hour marathons.
Saturday group long runs run from November 1 – March 31 to prepare runners for spring marathons. Each long run generally offers five or six pace groups, so you’ll be matched with runners of similar ability. Long runs are usually two loops from the same but alternating locations.
The group is free to join. Simply join our Facebook group (http://www.facebook.com/groups/jimsrunners/) for updates on group runs.

A band of former collegiate distance runners took their infatuation with endurance athletics and transformed it from a recreational activity into something with conviction. Sure, we’re committed to each other, but we’re also committed to ourselves: to giving our potentially aimless ambitions a pointed, focused direction, while not waiting for all the stars to perfectly align only to be blinded by the sun. It’s from these ideals – celebrating the process and sharing the experience with great friends – that the Jacuzzi Boys Athletic Club was born.
When Moms RUN This Town was founded, it was one Mama looking for other Mamas who needed to find themselves, find time for themselves, find time for each other. But pretty quickly, it became clear this wasn’t a Mama need. It was just a NEED. For ALL women. The She RUNS This Town logo was designed to represent that need, to represent ALL of us. Mother. Daughter. Wife. Sister. Friend. Woman. All of us. So we aren’t changing our name, but we now have two names. And if you weren’t sure before, please know, this group is not just for Moms. Because we ALL run this town.
This listing is for the Camas/Vancouver chapter of the Moms Run This Town national running group. Here’s the link to join this local chapter’s group Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1596438710638354
