I Like Pie 2018 is Right Around the Corner!

Individuals and families of all ages and running/walking abilities are encouraged to come run/walk, bring pie, eat pie and have fun at the 2018 I Like Pie event. All proceeds of the event will benefit Girls on the Run and NeighborImpact.

I Like Pie takes place on Thanksgiving Day, Nov 22, 2018. The two event options, an untimed 5k community run/walk and a shorter un-timed family fun run/walk, will again be in the Old Mill District with a new course design to ease congestion. The 3.1 mile course will take place on flat, paved pathways and trails through the Old Mill District along the beautiful Deschutes River.  The course is stroller friendly.

Day-of coordination of this event is made possible by community volunteers. There are still open time-slots, so community members interested in volunteering at the event are asked to register online at volunteersignup.org/3BHWL.

Runners are encouraged to bring along a pie to help feed the masses. You can choose to enter it in the pie baking contest or not. FootZone $50 gift certificates will be awarded for the top 3 pies in both the “traditional” and “open” pie category. Bring a homemade pie and get a $10 FootZone gift certificate!

The run/walk starts at 9am and will start and finish on Powerhouse Drive adjacent to the Center Plaza of the Old Mill District, in front of the flag bridge between Anthony’s and The GAP. T-shirt pick-up and race-day registration begins at 7am.

Participants are encouraged to bring 5 lbs of non-perishable food per person for NeighborImpact. Registration fees vary by distance and individual/family.

Registration: Registration is now mandatory for participation in the run/walk and pre-registration is highly encouraged.  A link to the registration form can be found online at footzonebend.com/happenings/i-like-pie. Thanksgiving Day sign-up will be available at the registration table beginning at 7:00 am. Payment by cash or check can be made with the paper forms available at FootZone or online at footzonebend.com/happenings/i-like-pie.
