  2. On Nov. 25, look for an email from Willamalane with your fillable bib. You get to pick your number on your bib (up to 4 digits)! Open it in Acrobat, click in the middle, type your number, and print. Cut it out, pin it on, and you're ready to go.

In-person Turkey Stuffer 5K

Unfortunately, this year’s in-person Turkey Stuffer is canceled due to the statewide two-week freeze. If you have already signed up for the in-person event, you have a couple of options.

Option 1: Keep the Turkey Spirit alive in 2020! Here’s how we’re modifying the event in light of the freeze. No action is needed on your end.
  • Automatic signup for Virtual Turkey Stuffer 5K: We’ll enroll you in the virtual event. Walk, run, or waddle your own course between Nov. 26-30.  We even have some suggested courses for you to try! 
  • Automatic signup for Turkey Stuffer 2021: We’ll also enroll you in next year’s Turkey Stuffer at no additional cost. Pre-registration will protect you against any possible price increases that may be associated with next year’s race, while supporting Willamalane as we continue to find ways to offer quality recreation in this challenging time.
  • T-shirts are on the way! If you have already ordered a shirt, it’s on the way. If you haven’t yet, this year’s shirts are extremely limited in quantity. If you’d like to place a new shirt order, do so while quantities and sizes last.
Option 2: Refund. We’d love to roll your registration into 2021, but we understand if you prefer a refund. Please contact Jack Mantel at jack.mantel@willamalane.org for next steps on the refund process. All refund requests must be received by Saturday, Nov. 21 at 5 p.m.

How do I sign up?
To sign up for the virtual event, register on our website or call our customer service team at 541-736-4544.

Why did you cancel the in-person event?

We canceled the in-person event due to the statewide two-week freeze issued by the Governor. Everyone who registered for the in-person event will be automatically enrolled in the Virtual 5K and their registration fee will roll over to the 2021 event.

How do I get a refund on the in-person event?
We’d love to roll your registration into 2021, but we understand if you prefer a refund. Please contact Jack Mantel at jack.mantel@willamalane.org for next steps on the refund process. All refund requests must be received by Saturday, Nov. 21 at 5 p.m.
