January 4, 2014 - A One-mile Run and a 5k Run. Warm up your New Year with friends, hot drinks, and a nice little run. Not much frills in this one, but, the 2014 event point system will be in force. Choose to Eat Right & Exercise Right. This event will help you achieve your goals.
In the 2013 Luckython, our athletes competed with athletes living in Dublin, Ireland in a 5k event. The Reserve Vineyards & Golf Club hosted the six-hour event. Included were a 5k, 10k, 15k, 15k Relay, 5k Headlamp Run, and Lil' Leprechaun Run. The 2014 Luckython on St. Patrick's Day Saturday will again feature both 'teams' - those from Dublin, Ireland, and those from Uberthons. How will we fare in 2014? Time will tell, but, we do know who won the best Irish Potato Bar! You had to experience it to believe it.
The 2013 Thanksgiving Morning Oregon Turkeython will have a new course this year. Washington Square in Portland, Oregon will host the morning event. The Oregon Turkeython is also the home of the Oregon Age Group Championship - we love competition in the age groups! The course for 2013 Thanksgiving morning is a new course around Washington Square mall. Several new races, and lots of multi-year leader boards keep you walking and running another year. Everyone medals!

The party starts and ends at St. Josef's Winery in the Willamette Valley just off I-5 in Aurora. What a great way to start a running season. Train through the winter, and go prove it on the course!
The Second Annual Freedomthon will be on July 4, 2014 in Beaverton, Oregon. The second most popular day of the year to get out and run! The event is a 5k Run/Fitness Walk. Starting at 8:30 am, the Community Breakfast and Fun Fest is sure to please. All the necessary streets are completely closed by Police Department order! The course is flat and fast. Each runner gets a Freedomthon medal, flag to carry on the last quarter mile on the course, and all the 4th of July pancake breakfast he or she can eat!
The Championship Reserve Vineyards & Golf Club hosted the event on October 26, 2013. The popular 5k, 10k, 15k Runs & Walks were spread out in the day-long and evening-long event. The Run For Your Bones started at 9 AM; the Zombie Shuffle at 11 AM, the Casper Dash at 1:15 PM, Trick or Treatathon at 2 PM; and, the Monster Moon Run at 6:30 PM. Afterwards, Famous Dave's Restaurant catered the best Halloweenathon BBQ buffet dinner imaginable. An all-day nachos bar kept us all going - done with precision by Alisa Goodrich. Acceleration Sports Medicine and Sports Authority were the day's sponsors. The 2014 event will feature an afternoon or evening Zombiethon - now that sounds interesting.

Uberthons is an event management & timing company bringing to you the "thons" events and other special events. A year-end Oregon Turkeython is really an annual Oregon age-group championship.
Meant for serious and casual runners and serious and casual walkers, each event is professionally timed with Jaguar timing, instant results are posted immediately, and some events are among cities - like the 2013 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.
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.
