Welcome!

Hello Parents, 

 

Welcome to Runner2Runner Columbia River RC! I am Tyler Green, your head coach this season.

 

Runner2Runner’s mission is to introduce track and field training or cross country in a safe, positive and supportive environment to young athletes.  

 

Our first practice will be held on Wednesday, September 5th  at (NEW LOCATION)Fisher Basin Park - SE 192nd Ave Camas, WA 98607.

 

We will meet at the playground structure area. Please arrive a few minutes early to allow time to check in and get settled. For the first practice, we will begin with introducing ourselves and going over expectations for the season and answer any questions you may have. You’re welcome to join us for the entire practice if your schedule permits.

 

We're hoping to see some more runners sign up to be part of our team; if you have any neighbors or friends interested in joining, please encourage them to sign up ASAP!

BIO:

Born and raised in Portland, OR, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to join the R2R team. I ran track at Cleveland HS and Colorado College, competing in sprints and relays while dabbling in long jump. Relays were always my favorite events in track because of the added element of timing and team chemistry.
Sports continue to be a great influence in my life – you’ll find me playing basketball, soccer, 
kickball, and flag football as often as possible.

I’m currently a professional mentor at Friends of the Children and love incorporating games/play into activities with youth. Outside of athletics and work, I enjoy exploring nature, traveling, attending Blazers and Timbers games, eating my way through
Portland’s exquisite cuisine, listening to hip hop and R&B, and spending time with friends and family
(specifically, my golden retriever named Rocco).
