"Turkey Trot " 21st Annual 2020 Race Results! Click here to see more. 

turkey trot

This year's Turkey Trot was a successful way to exercise off all that gravy!  We ran over 86 miles as a community, with 25 participants (17 of which reported miles).  Our winner this year, who reported 10 miles during the two day period, was Marcus Legrand!  Great job Marcus!

This year's run "from home" saw participants exercising in various locations including Vista Butte, Deschutes River Canyon, the agricultural fields in the Willamette Valley, Misery Ridge, Pilot Butte, Triangle Lake, and one of us even saw a flock of wild turkeys at Black Butte Ranch!  What a great way for us to still be Bobcats together while we can't be physically together.

Thr results bumped us into 3rd place in the nation in the 2020 Recreation Movement!  WOW!  Keep logging your exercise time here:  #TogetherBobcats!

Here are some of the stairs our participants ran during the 25th Annual "Storm The Stairs."  Despite the odds, we are showing how we #RecAtHome!  Moreover, this race helped us climb from #11 to #7 in the Nation in the 2020 Recreation Movement.  A special thanks to all the participants, including this year’s winner, COCC Student Maricruz Valdovinos Mariles, who reported 850 stairs!  Good work, Maricruz!

"Jungle Run" 25th Annual 2020 Race Results! Click here to see more.




Jungle Run

The 25th Annual Jungle Run “from home” was a success July 24-25th!  We had 24 registrants, 18 of whom reported their miles to the tune of 131 total miles!  That beat our goal of 100 miles together.  Go Bobcats! 

Traditionally, the Jungle Run has steep ascents, log crossings, mud, and all sorts of difficult and fun terrain.  This year we asked participants what their “creative features” were on their trail runs and they reported things like “keeping away from other people,” “dodging dog poop on the river trail,” “jogging with the baby in the baby carrier,” “boulder hopping in the river,” and “surrounded by thousands of wildflowers.”  What a race!  

Our winner (most miles) was Kimber Mattox, who ran up South Sister 11.75 miles.  Wow.  Congrats Kimber!  Our student who reported the most miles was a tie - Jill Mann and Josiah Esper both ran 8 miles.  Great job, Josiah and Jill!
