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.

Questions/Comments:

Roman’s 2 Mile Time Trial

I don’t like time trials. I only ever use them when I feel like it’s necessary to know someone's fitness, and I almost always know how fit my athletes are. I would say that 90% of the time I have an athlete do a time trial - there’s almost no change in their...

Roman’s First Month Back

Around two months after CIM, Roman started to develop some pain in his leg. He took about six weeks to fully recover, which involved both rest days, and easy running. Roman has been back “training” for the past six weeks now, and I thought it might be helpful to see...

We always take time off after a race, especially a race that was important, and required a long build-up. The reasons for emphasizing recovery are infinite, but here are a few key reasons. Physically recover: this is much more than just getting to the point where one...

“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...
