Post-run food? The tag on your bib is your food ticket.
Chocolate chip pancakes
. . . and, strawberries
Friends may purchase the food for $10.00.
The event is a timed event, and most likely, your name will be announced when you cross the finish line:
Each participant receives their own bib with a chip on the back. The chip is used for timing at the start and the finish lines. More importantly it's a keepsake for a great event...and it makes you look good.
WEAR YOUR BIB ON THE FRONT, AND THE UPPER BODY. This works best for timing and for photos.
Results are available on the Chocolatathon results page, results.uberthons.com, and Uberthons home page.
Due to construction in the parking lot at Cook Park, parking is limited. Please carpool if possible. If the parking lot fills up, drop passengers off at Cook Park and then park at Tigard High School by the football stadium. We will have a shuttle pick up drivers for the event. Thank you for you patience in this matter.
All 5k and 10k participants with a 5k or 10k race bib receive a finishers medal.
For your information, the medals were sent by the manufacturer, which is in China. We had a conversation with the manufacturer about the situation and the processes of manufacturing and packaging. We learned the medals were placed in cartons before the 2019-nCoV virus originated. The cartons were inspected by U.S. Customs. In addition, the event organizers talked directly with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to ask questions about the potential for packages from China carrying the virus. Information given to us was read directly from the CDCP website, and, can be viewed HERE. The medals are safe. We enjoyed hearing some of your comments during the past few days. Your Chocolatathon registration is still good! Have fun!
Parents may purchase a kid's medal for the Kidathons race for $10 the event.
Overall medals are awarded to the 3 fastest male and female 5k, fastest 1,2,3 age 45+, and fastest 1,2,3 age 65+ participants after the event. Listen for your name to be called.
Age-group pins are available after the event.
Results are available online - see if you have won a pin or an overall medal.
Medals and pins will not be mailed.
No discounts nor refunds will be made available for the event.
An Adidas Employee Store discount of 50% has been arranged for all participants. Just bring your bib or event-confirmation email to the store. All information is on this page: ADIDAS DISCOUNT
