Running routes in and around NW Portland

Portland (OR) is a great location to run.  A summary of my running routes and maps can be found below.  From April to October, I do my longer runs with Portland Marathon Clinic. During the winter one of the PMC coaches (Jim) leads a 12 min/mi group.  We alternate our runs between North Portland, Willamette park/Sellwood and 23rd/waterfront.  We all run the same pace, but distances vary widely from 8 mi up to 20 miles.

Here are some running maps:

  • Around home or school
    • Fanno Creek trail out and back up to 10 mi (map)
    • Bethany 4 mi (map)
    • Bethany 6 mi (map)
    • Rock Creek Rd and Skyline, no sidewalks, but great hill practice (map)
    • lots of runs in the shade on Wildwood and Leif Ericson (in Forest Park)
