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.
