Whether your goal is to get fit, stay fit, get faster, get stronger, cross the finish line, make new friends, or just learn a few new things, joining a group helps with accountability and accountability is what gets you to the finish line.  It takes courage to join a group and to start something new. We are excited to meet you and help you succeed. We are a positive, encouraging and supportive group, so get ready to meet some amazing new friends!

This group is for all abilities and everyone is welcome!  Together we will train (mostly) at Portland Running Company in Beaverton but we will have other options and adventures along the way.  Our eleven week program includes coaching, store discounts, seminars, and a training program that leads you to the Hippie Chick Half/Quarter Marathon on May 11, 2024.

This program does not include registration into the Hippie Chick Half Marathon so please register separately for the Hippie Chick Half/Quarter Marathon. Each group will have a Mentor to assist. Our group meets on Saturday at 8:30am sharp! Please come ready to run or walk.  We will host a short seminar before each training walk or run and we will have coffee and snacks afterwards. Cost for the entire program is just $195!
