I Like Pie

New this year!  I Like Pie and the Bend Thanksgiving Classic are merging! FootZone is joining forces with the Boys & Girls Club of Bend in addition to NeighborImpact to bring you an even better I Like Pie.  We have a new location (the Old Mill), the option of timed and untimed 5k and 10k distances or a shorter family fun run/walk, and a guaranteed snow-free course! Please note that if you plan to attend, registration is now a requirement. Individuals and families of all ages and running/walking abilities are encouraged to come run/walk, bring pie, eat pie, and have fun! All proceeds benefit Girls on the Run and NeighborImpact.

Distance options: Timed 5k and 10k, untimed 1 mi, 5k, and 10k.

Where:  I Like Pie 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.

When: Thanksgiving Day, Nov 23, 2017. Run/walk starts at 9am. T-shirt pick-up and race-day registration begins at 7am.

Cost: Participants are encouraged to bring 5 lbs of non-perishable food per person for NeighborImpact. Registration fees vary by distance and individual/family. See the registration page for details. Register early for best prices!

Registration: Registration is now mandatory for participation in the run/walk and pre-registration is highly encouraged. Register online with a credit card (processing fee applies) or mail/drop off paper registration form at Boys and Girls Clubs of Bend, 500 NW Wall St, Bend, OR 97703 or FootZone.  Day-of-event sign-up will be available at the registration table beginning at 7:00 am. Online registration closes at 6pm on Wed, Nov 22.

Packet Pickup: Wed, Nov 22 from 10am – 6pm at FootZone Bend, 842 NW Wall St in Bend or on Thanksgiving Day at the event beginning at 7am.

I Like PiePie:  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 gift certificate to FootZone! Please follow these pie safety guidelines

Food Drive and Donations: Please bring your 5 lbs of non-perishable food per participant for NeighborImpact on the morning of the event. We will have a collection trailer.  Help us set a record for the highest number of pounds donated! We also welcome additional financial donations for Girls on the Run and NeighborImpact at the event. Simply swing by the registration tables.

Course: The 5K (3.1 mile) loop course will take place on flat, paved pathways and trails through the Old Mill District along the beautiful Deschutes River. Participants in the 10K will complete a second loop that is slightly different. The course is stroller friendly, so bring the whole gang out! Thanks to Source Landscaping, we have been guaranteed a course cleared of snow! View the course map.

Shirts: The shirt is a comfy cotton blend t-shirt (the same brand and model as the I Like Pie shirts last year – note that the women’s tee is a fitted style that runs small), perfect for lounging after your big meal. The cost is $15 and only guaranteed for pick-up on 11/22 at FootZone or at I Like Pie if you pre-order on or before Thursday, 11/9.  After 11/9 the cost is $20 and the shirts will be available for pickup at FootZone on 12/12.I Like Pie

Dogs:  We love dogs too but our permit for I Like Pie prohibits dogs other than service dogs at this event.

Parking: Parking will be available in the Old Mill District’s parking lots but not along Powerhouse Drive.
