RunBlogRun opines: Another wonderful effort from Jonathan Marcus and his team. Jonathan is the man behind HOKA ONE ONE Oxy Middle Distance, Adrian Martinez Classic, and Portland Track Festival. Jonathan told me that he is interested in creating small events where the athletes’ interest are truly considered! Well done, Jonathan. You are now on my list for 2017. And Drew Windle, Clayton Murphy, Kim Conley, Brenda Martinez and Gabe Grunewald all show the success of the event!
