The most popular day of the year to get out and run, to help burn extra calories before the big feast.  Start line and finish line are at Portland Waterfront Park under the Morrison Bridge.

The course is mostly flat and fast. This course will have some of the fastest times in all of the Northwest on Thanksgiving morning.  The 2020 event will certainly draw the area's top runners, and the best looking participants!

The Downtown Portland 5k is not timed, however wear your bib on your chest so photos will work perfectly.  Refreshment bar opens at 9:30 AM - Each 5k finisher will receive their own individual mini pie. We try not to fill you up on Thanksgiving morning - please, paid participants only.

All 5k finishers receive the Turkeython finishers medal. Wear it to church, work, play, running, or swimming, or just hang it on your wall.  Either way, display it with pride because you earned it.

Both male and female winners of the 5k receive the overall medals.

We welcome Starbucks as the official hot drink sponsor for the Portland Turkeython. Be sure to thank them for helping you to keep warm by providing delicious coffee.

Turkeythoners in the past have dressed in turkey outfits, pilgrims, or Santa suits. Whatever you decide, you will want to dress warm.
