Displaying Related Records in a From

I am writing a software for a dog sport called Nosework. It's coming along well so far.


I have to generate output PDFs in the form of the link below, based on the UKCs judge's books rules. I cannot change this layout:


I'm not sure how to do this in Filemaker.

The header information on the above form would come from my Trial table.  The row information would come from my Run Table, as there are many runs that happen within a trial.


I can build a Form Layout that looks like this, based on my Trial table.  But I don't really think I can use a portal (maybe I can?) for the detail information, that comes from the Runs table.  If I use a portal, it would need to page break and continue on more pages when there are too many portal rows to print on one page.


I'm very new to Filemaker and would love some help and advice about how to go about doing this.
