From the beginning in 2017, we’ve aimed to create something really special with Rose City Track Club. Our goals are to build deep bonds among teammates, accountability, and trust in each other’s support in reaching our big running goals.
We take pride in our structured approach to training, which includes seven opportunities for training in a small group setting every week including speed work, strength training, easy runs, and long runs; plus team rates on personal coaching, massage therapy, physical therapy, and more.
Beyond technical training, our aim is to foster an environment of team camaraderie and support. All abilities are welcome, though we do recommend at least two years of prior running experience.
