This Thanksgiving Day event consists of a 5K and 10K this year! It's a beautiful tour around the Ruth Bascom Trail network in the greater Alton Baker Park area; with a new course that crosses the river twice. Many sections of the course are situated right next to the Willamette River with great views. Runners will finish at the same location they started . Minimal elevation gain for this course. Open to runners and walkers of all fitness levels. NO DOGS, due to the narrowness of the course and a short out and back section. Thank you for understanding.
