Central Oregon Thanksgiving Classic
The Central Oregon Thanksgiving Classic is a 10 and 5k race that started in 2009 as the primary fundraising event for the organization Girls on the Run of Deschutes County. Now in it's 5th official year the race has grown to host over 1,000 runners and walkers every Thanksgiving morning in the Old Mill District. This family friendly event brings in participants from all over Central Oregon as well as guests and tourists that are here for the Holiday. Runners and walkers of all skill levels are encouraged to join this festive celebration. New to this year's race is a chance for you to race against The Turkey through the course. The race starts and ends on Shevlin Hixon behind the Les Schwab Amphitheater stage and loops through trails in the Old Mill District. This is a timed event and awards will go to the top overall male and female finishers in the 5 and 10k runs. Costumes and silly gear are encouraged. This is an all-weather event.
You may register for this event starting October 1 at Fleet Feet Sports Bend, Boys & Girls Club of Central Oregon or www.centraloregonthanksgivingclassic.com
