Team Athena is a Portland, Oregon based women’s running club. Our mission is to promote women’s running throughout Oregon by providing an educational, supportive, and positive running environment for women of all ages and abilities.
Team Athena generally meets for track workouts on Tuesday nights at Lincoln High School in Portland, Oregon at 5:45pm. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
I’ve been running with Team Athena for 5 years and I am the runner I have become because of Team Athena. With the camaraderie and support from this group of women you can truly become whatever kind of runner you choose. TA does a great job of catering to runners of various levels, from beginners to former top collegiate athletes. Not only do you find great workout partners with workouts written by amazing coaches but also incredible friends and you can share and learn the many secrets and tricks to running with each other. If you are a woman looking to train, learn and be supported by other dedicated female athletes this group won’t disappoint you. Give it a try, everybody’s first step out onto the track is terrifying but you quickly realize: the people are wonderful, you CAN do the workouts, and the benefits are indescribable and very personal.
I started running with Team Athena about eight years ago when I moved to the Portland area. I was tired of running alone and wanted to find women to run with. Team Athena offers track workouts for female members on Tuesday nights, and it’s been so fun to find workout partners. A group of us often meet on Thursdays and Saturdays for runs as well. I’ve made some of my best friends in Portland through Team Athena and absolutely love it!
