To be clear, you don’t have to sign up to run both events. You can choose the mile, or the 5K, or both. But come on, there aren’t a lot of mile races around here, so you really should take advantage of the opportunity. And there aren’t a lot of double-race events, so you might as well give the double a go of it.
The race location is Cook Park in Tigard, which is a venue with plenty of parking and a nice staging area with covering and several bathrooms. Cook Park used to be a primary location for Uberthons races, but as the main 5K/10K events – Luckython, Halloweenathon, Turkeython – have grown, they’ve moved to other locations. As far as I know, this may be the only Uberthons race at Cook Park in 2016.
Besides the chip-timed race(s), registrants get a finisher’s medal and a pancake breakfast. The 2016 finisher’s medals will share a belt buckle design (as pictured above).
