Membership Options

There are two membership options.  The Fun Run Membership option is for those who just want to get together and run in a group and have some fun.  The Premium Race Membership option is for those who have running goals and want to train a little harder.  Premium members will have access to generalized training plans and set some race goals.  Both groups will have fun!   See all membership options here.

Meeting Specifics

This summer we will have two weekly runs, on Wednesdays at 4:00 pm starting at the Neah-Kah-Nie High School track and Thursdays at 5:15 pm starting at the Tillamook Junior High School activity trail. We will also host a monthly beach run the 1st Saturday of the month at 11:00 am. Our next beach run will be August 3 starting at the Wayside Park in Rockaway Beach.  All ages & abilities welcome.    Stay tuned to the “Coach’s Corner” for the latest run plans and schedule.

“I don’t want to die without any scars.” 50 mile champs

In the midst of races cancelling everywhere due to the corona virus, the Pioneer 50 mile trail race, was impossibly on. After cancelled airline tickets, we piled into separate cars, and headed south. This was a race in which the majority of the team had been training...
