The Portland Running Company Race Team had its second Grand Prix race of 2017 at the Heartbreaker 10K (technically the Providence Heart to Start 10K) on Feb. 12 in Hillsboro. At least 25 of our team members enjoyed a chilly but clear run on the rolling country roads of rural Washington County.
Unfortunately for him, our stalwart teammate Wayne Dilly is injured right now, but fortunately for us, that means he was there snapping pictures during the event! He took a ton. Here are the ones he selected for us. Enjoy!
If you have any questions about joining our team—yes, you can—just email [email protected].)
