The 5th annual Great Turkey Fumble was poised to be the best one yet, but alas, restrictions on in person events means we had to be creative this year and alter the plan. So we are happy to introduce to you the partnership between The Great Turkey Fumble and Run for More, a 'streaking' and community focused, month long running challenge.

The challenge is simple : Pick one of the distance options and you have the entire month to run or walk those miles. Feeling adventurous? Go for the 100 mile in one month challenge, just a bit more than 3.1 miles a day. Or go for the 25 mile challenge, which equals out to one mile a day, with five rest days. All of this is inspired by 'streaking' which is running in consecutive days, these challenges will push you, but you won't be alone. You'll be together with the Newberg community again as each day runners can log their miles and pictures in an effort of showing support.

And of course one of the highlights of this event is the "Run Newberg" race shirt, which will be mailed to you!

All proceeds from Run Newberg will go towards Newberg FISH, Newberg's Food Bank. As you can imagine, 2020 has seen a huge increase in need at Newberg FISH and they need our support. Newberg FISH serves over 2,000 people every month and that number could increase in the near future.

About Run for More : RFM is about committing to run for more than just yourself. Please don't get us wrong, we fully believe running possesses extreme personal benefits that are good for all and those should all stay with you. But when you are ready to add more purpose to your daily/weekly/monthly run, that is where RFM fits in.
