Turkey Trot 2020
YMCA Turkey Trot
Thanksgiving Day - Thursday, November 26 UPDATE
The Turkey Trot is still on but will look different now that Governor Kate Brown has issued a mandate stating the YMCA must close its’ doors November 18 – December 2, 2020. The run will now become a virtual run HOWEVER we will still provide an opportunity for participants to run on Thanksgiving Day. Below are the changes to this year’s run: • This update and race route maps will be emailed out to all registered participants. • Race bibs, swag bags and ordered t-shirts may be picked up at the YMCA starting November 18th through November 25th Monday-Friday between the hours of 10am – 2pm (the YMCA will be closed but we’ll have staff in the business offices). • Participants are welcome to use the map and run the race anytime of the day on Thanksgiving Day (no staff will be present). • The race routes will be marked with arrows from 6am-6pm on Thanksgiving Day. • The start of the race will be marked in the YMCA parking lot (same starting point as last year, refer to the map as well). • We will also place our turkey cut out and Turkey Trot banner near the YMCA front entrance if you’d like to take a photo by it. • 5K runners – track your time and distance and submit a photo of the results via email to Stephanie Lund at email@example.com. There will be medals given out to winners in each age group and gender categories. Race results must be submitted to Stephanie by November 27, 2020. Winners will be contacted the following week and results will be posted on our website and Facebook page. • Costume contest – we have prizes to giveaway this year so if you’d like to enter then please take a photo of yourself and/or family dressed up as you race and submit the photo to Stephanie Lund by November 27, 2020. We will contact contest winners the following week and post winners on our website and Facebook page. Have fun and be creative! We really hope everyone takes advantage of this opportunity to race at your pace on Thanksgiving Day. You can sleep in now but still enjoy time with family and friends walking/running the route anytime of the day. Have fun and be safe! If you have any questions about the race or about refunds please contact Stephanie Lund at 541- 474-0001 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
