Medals for all finishers with unique pins attached for each county fair. Yes, you may run in multiple county fairs!

Hi, I am Tara Arnold - Mrs. Oregon for 2013. I will again introduce health & wellness concepts, give medals, hand out awards, and make this event part of your family tradition. I will bring healthy eating suggestions and wise exercise suggestions to you throughout the year.

Each year we come together to run for high schoolers. If we are going to run anyway, let's run for our kids! This 5k run/walk has everything you expect - huge medals, a food bar, music, a great course, instant results, and great friends and neighbors. High school seniors are eligible to walk away with a $1,000 scholarship to the school of choice; in-state or out-of-state. Come join the fun on Saturday morning or Monday evening. This run is on Boston Marathon weekend. Another way to help while we are eating right and exercising right. The more scholarships given at this run, the better!

Use your bib tabs to refuel with whatever drinks suits you. Use your other tabs to grab those brats and krauts you avoided while training. Bring the family, and enjoy!

Uberthons is an event management & timing company bringing to you the "thons" events and other special events. The series of events are presented as a way for you to keep active and strong. Learn to Eat Right, Exercise Right. Be rewarded for your effort!
WHAT KIND OF EVENTS DOES UBERTHONS DO?
Meant for serious and casual runners and serious and casual walkers, each event is professionally timed with Jaguar timing equipment, instant results are posted immediately, and some events are among cities - like the Dublin, Ireland 5k and the Uberthons Luckython 5k. Some events have 18 events during the day (Halloweenathon). Others are long-distance – the Oregon Marathon & Oregon Half Marathon. Watch for two new series of which Uberthons is a part - one of the series is a statewide County Fair 5k Series! What a way to have fun!
Uberthons has developed a new division - 'Fitness Walkers.' Walking is the fastest growing physical activity in the U.S. In addition to the runners divisions and the race-walker divisions, Uberthons events now has a special category for Fitness Walkers. Homepages, photos, medals, potato bars . . . everything is included for the Fitness Walkers. Welcome to the thon events!
WHAT KIND OF KIDS PROGRAMS DOES UBERTHONS OFFER?
Kids are very special to Uberthons. An Uberkids summer program and after school program have been added. If kids learn to be fit when they are kids, they will practice proper nutrition and exercise techniques as they get older. In addition, a jogathons program will be offered to elementary schools. The UberJogathon program consists of two components - a registration system designed to help bring in much more in donations than any other system, and an automatic lap-counting system that helps teachers and parents. RFID timing chips are used to provide the automatic lap-count making kids feel like they are part of a world-class event!
WHAT KIND OF 'BLING' IS OFFERED AT THE EVENTS?
2014 brings a series of medals. You can see them on the left-hand side of this homepage. Beginning with the Luckython, a pin with a clasp is part of the event medal - the pin comes off the medal, which allows you to start a pin collection of your events.
The events spend resources on the medals and neck ribbons, so shirts are uncommon with the thons events - of course except for the Half Marathons and Marathons. Participants agree - the medals are fantastic, and they would rather have a medal than 'another' shirt to go on the pile. Yes, everyone gets a medal. The overall winners of the races, and the last person to finish. Yes, even for a 5k race. We hope the medals motivate you to continue, or to begin, your active lifestyle.
CAN WE HAVE AN UBERTHONS EVENT IN OUR AREA?
Wouldn't it be wonderful if everyone in America were fit! Uberthons thinks so, too. If your company would like to adopt Uberthons events as part of your company strategy to improve employee fitness, Contact us, and we will talk about your desires.
If you are a healthcare company in Oakland, Chicago, or even in Minnetonka, send us a note. We know you have a mandate to improve membership opportunities for America to become more fit through the Affordable Care Act - we have read it, too! We can help, or we can be the model. Contact us, and we will begin with you today. It is no secret to us that employees can receive a rebate check of $800, $1,600, or even $2,400 annually if the healthcare company, or the corporate office, offers a sustainable program for fitness. A program can be developed that will allow a member to run four or five 5k or 10ks in a year to become eligible for the rebate even though the company pays the premium. A healthier America is a better America.
