    The Wildwood Relay

    The Wildwood Relay

    As part of our ten year anniversary celebration we are throwing down a team relay of our favorite trail in Portland, the Wildwood Trail. The Wildwood Relay will be a fun, two to four person run that takes your team over the 30 miles of the Wildwood Trail competing for the fastest time or having a fun day out on the trail!

    Here is how it works:

    1. You choose your team of 2-4 people. 

    2. Choose a team name and an item that you will transfer between each runner (baton, bracelet, toy dinosaur, whatever)

    3. You decide your methods; including your starting point (the zoo or Newberry Rd), your handoff locations and distances run for each person on your team. 

    4. You submit your team relay overall time. Later, we will request gpx file from each leg of your relay so make sure each person records their segment. 

    5. We post your results on our Wildwood Relay Leaderboard. 

    The Rules:

    1. You cannot have more than three handoff locations. 

    2. You cannot illegally park anywhere to make a better handoff location (obviously). 

    3. You must be courteous and share the trails with all users of the park. 

     

    How to Win:

    Your team has the fastest overall time in your category- (Men's, Women's, Non Binary and Open/Mix Gender)

    I am proposing The Group Run Project.

    It is an important piece of our humanity to be around people consistently.  I failed at being consistent at group runs in the past but after hearing from friends and how their community runs and have had a big positive impact on their lives I am inspired.

    I am starting a small group run this month to try to create a meaningful interaction with friends on a regular basis. I will keep you posted on how it goes but I'd also like to get more people in on this. If you are interested in starting one or want to commit to attending a group run each week let me know. Id love to hear about it.  

    Also, if you have been part of a successful group run it would be great to hear about the elements that make it thrive.

    If you are looking to start a group run check out this new article by Jessica Carroll. She took the reins of a group run in Austin and turned it into one of the best attended runs in the country.  She tells a little bit about how she did it.
