5k Fun Run
The first half of the 5k is on approved closed portions of roads in the City of Happy Valley and Clackamas County. The second half of the course is on the mall - a run around the beautiful Clackamas Town Center.
The fast people will start at the front of the pack, and, the good-looking people will start towards the rear of the pack. You may run or walk. The course will be closed at 9:30 AM.
Alpenrose milk, Dairygold chocolate milk, and Costco muffins Bar
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 carton of milk, and enjoy the muffin.
Everyone gets a hat as long as supplies last. Pick up your hat at the race on Thursday.
$5.00. Oregon Turkeython shirts are available in certain Women's sizes. While the supply lasts. Bring $5.00 to the event, and go home in style. (Thank you to those who have purchased Doernbecher Giving Shirts)
Please bring a small toy to the event, or bring it to one of the many Famous Footwear stores in Portland or Vancouver. Toys will be donated to Doernbecher Children's Hospital.
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 www.uberthons.com, 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. You, of course, will see your results on a Clackamas Town Center results page - in addition, you will see your results combined with participant results of the Bridgeport Village Turkeython. 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, 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 take a photo of all participants who wear the Uberthons hat that each of you will receive. The photo will be sent to Competitor.com magazine in appreciation for selecting the Turkeython as one of the 24 must-do November/December running events in the U.S. READ ABOUT IT.

The parking map helps you keep off the kids course, and the 5k course. When you are ready to exit the event, please do not drive over the course.
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 Packet Pick Up, or at the event.
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.
Age-group pins are also awarded by the announcer.
Appreciate the volunteers. Some have been up since midnight getting things ready to help you enjoy yourself on Thanksgiving morning.
If you want to share your experience with friends and family across the world, have them register for the Virtual Turkeython. They get the same medal you get, and, they get a timing watch to get their results. Have them click on this logo:
Upcoming Uberthons Events
The next events are"

If you can say Chocolatathon really fast, you can run this 5k. Tigard' Cook Park hosts this annual event. And, yes, it is about the chocolate.

This will be fun. A huge Portland-area results page will show you how you do compared to all the Turkeython events that have chip timing. Who will be #1? Who will be #100? How will you do?
