That's right!  Every Turkeython tries to refresh you, but, does not try to fill you up.  To get filled up, you will want to register for Uberthons other events - CLICK HERE. Take a cup of hot coffee and a muffin.


Results are available online when you cross the finish line. You may find your results at the following locations:

Listening to the announcer. Pick up your age-group pin from the announcer.  

Online results - simply go to, and click on RESULTS.

Online multi-year results - check out four years worth of results.


Your results will be combined with participant results at Bridgeport Village, Hillsboro, Clackamas, and Yoncalla, OR. You, of course, will see your results on the Vancouver results page.  How will you do? 

Results are figured using chip-timing.  This is a chip-timed race.  That means each participant gets his or her start and finish time as he or she crosses the start or finish line.  If you cross your chip with your arm, which is on the back of the race bib, you may not get a start time or a finish time. In this case, your award may be given to someone else.  If you did not get a result, it is most likely because you covered your chip with your arm, or you wore your bib on your back. WEAR YOUR BIB ON THE FRONT, AND THE UPPER BODY.  This works best for photos and for results.

The Turkeython will make a results video as soon as possible.  Watch the Facebook page to see the results presentation on video.


Park in the shopping mall parking lot.  But, please do not park on the inside of the course.  Park away from the course.  You will see the course is marked with orange cones.  Please park 100 feet away from the orange cones. 


Pick up your medal after your race.  You must have a race bib on to receive a medal. 

Parents may purchase a kid's medal for $10 at Bib Pick Up, or at the event for the non-timed Kidathons event. All kids receive a Turkeython ribbon.

Overall medals are awarded to the 3 fastest male and female, the 3 fastest male and female who are 45+, and 3 fastest male and female who are 65+.

Overall medals will be awarded by the announcer.  If you miss your overall medal or age-group pin, pick them up at an Uberthons event.  Awards will not be mailed.

Age-group pins are also awarded by the announcer.

Kids medals are pictured here.
