The Oregon Turkeython is an annual Thanksgiving 5k and 10k run in the Portland area on Thanksgiving day! It’s the perfect opportunity to come out and get a run in to earn that Sunday night Thanksgiving meal!
The Turkeython features a few different distance options. Runners can elect to run a 5k, or can run a 10k family relay. In the relay up to 4 members each run a per-marked course with their own turkeython baton, and try to complete a total of 10 kilometers as fast as they can!
Every finisher of this event gets a large Turkeython medal to commemorate their achievement! Additionally, runners will get to see constant race and timing updates on large, real time boards so that runners can see how they stack up in their age group.
