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 outing between the Oregon Zoo and the International Rose Gardens. Participants finish inside the zoo, much to the delight of two-legged and four-legged mammals alike and features three fun kids’ events.Approximately $25,000 of entry fees go to benefit the Oregon Zoo.
Thanks to our major sponsor, Columbia Bank, for their continued support of this event.
