About Albina RoadRunners

We are a comprehensive track & field program in Portland Oregon. Our club was founded by Mr. Phil Walden, who quietly but effectively impacted the lives of thousands of youth from all over the city of Portland and outlining areas.


His unwavering commitment and mentorship helped produce countless numbers of college graduates, coaches, professionals and community leaders.  Albina Sports Program strives to continue building on the foundation that he laid.
