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 of Central Oregon andNeighborImpact.
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.

We Like Pie! Bring along a pie to help feed the masses. You can choose to enter it in the pie baking contest or not. $50 FootZone 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: https://
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!
Shirts: The shirt is a comfy cotton blend t-shirt (the same brand and model as the I Like Pie shirts last year), 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.
Dogs: We love dogs 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.
