The most popular ORRC race, the Columbia Bank / ORRC Turkey Trot at the Oregon Zoo is a multi-generational family event. Runners and walkers of all abilities love the 4-mile, untimed out and back course between the Oregon Zoo and the International Rose Gardens. Participants finish inside the Zoo at the Elephant Plaza. Approximately $25,000 of entry fees go to benefit the Oregon Zoo.
After online pre-registration has closed, you may still register in person at the Wednesday November 27 early bib pickup event or on the morning of the event - both at Miller Hall across from the Zoo.
Awesome family rates are available (maximum 2 adults and 3 children - immediate family only) by choosing our multi-person pricing option in the sign up process. Registration info must be completed for each family member. Start by registering the first person. You'll then see the option for multi-person pricing. Select the family option and then add registrations for other family members.
