Photo opportunities are everywhere at the mall. Photos will be taken of you and your team in front of the Turkeython arch. Photos will be available at the Turkeython SmugMug website and on the Uberthons Facebook page - just as soon as we can upload them.  You may also bring a camera to take all the photos you want.  Would you mind sending some of your photos to us - we will post them or use them on the website. Email

After the event you may go to the website to see links to the photos.

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 cup of hot chocolate, and enjoy the muffin.

The Course

See it online.  HERE.  Notice - you will run the course twice.  The course is flat.  Notice the first lap will take you close to the mall building where the course map says 1ST LAP ONLY.  Run this once, but, not the second lap. Volunteers, signs, and cones will remind you. Have a great run!


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, Vancouver, and Yoncalla, OR. You, of course, will see your results on the Clackamas 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 parking lot at the mall.  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. 


Congratulations to the Baby Boot Camp team - you won!  More team members than any other team.  Good job.

Boys & Girls Club

Thank you for donating to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland.  They are thrilled, and, the kids will love you.


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.  If you would like your child to have a Turkeython adult medal, you may trade your kids medal for an adult medal at the end of the race if Turkeython adult medals are available.
