Coach's Update

Day trip! Info coming...

Hello, UO Running Club — (Sunday, May 19, 2024)

We have two vans for a Club day trip to the Oregon coast on Saturday, June 1. This week Keaton will email you details on the trip and how to sign up with her, not me. On this trip, you’ll get sand between your toes!

Two of our sprinters, Ananya Khanna and Ayano Toyose, competed unattached in the George Fox Final Qualifier on Thursday. Results below.

Thanks to the Club members who worked the paid jobs on the livestream of this weekend’s state track championships at Hayward. You did a great job!

We’ll meet on weekdays at 3pm through the end of final exams, then take a break this summer.

Who we are. What we do!

UO Running Club gives students the chance to get together to run, train and race. Most of our sessions are steady runs. A couple of days each week we offer harder training sessions (intervals, repetitions, hills, tempo runs, cruise intervals).

The club is coached by Tom Heinonen, a member of the US Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Hall of Fame who coached the University of Oregon women for nearly three decades. In his time coaching the women, he transformed the team from a young program into an NCAA powerhouse. He retired in 2003 and has been coaching the Running Club since.

In 2021 Bob Williams has begun to coach with the Club too, after many years coaching in Portland.

In the Fall we compete in collegiate cross country races throughout Oregon.

In the Spring, we enter in collegiate track meets. Several of our runners earn the opportunity to race at Hayward Field each spring. There are road races throughout the year. We have a wide range of talent and commitment levels, from recreational runners to Club record breakers.

Club members receive an e-mailed workout schedule for the following week every Sunday.

All running sessions are optional. To join, just show up to one of the practices or contact one of us.

The Running Club is a great way to get together with students and to enjoy running!
