logoYou might recall our Races of Gametiime feature about Redmond’s Great Day of Play 5K back in late-August. We’re happy to say that the City of Redmond is hosting another great race! The 3rd Annual Poultry Predictor brings back its race (with a predictor twist) for another 4-mile trail race through Redmond’s Farrel-McWhirter Farm where you don’t have to be a speed demon to win! Check out our interview with Sarah Sandquist, Race Director, for this unique race and hear what she has to say about the Poultry Predictor!


#4Tell us about the Poultry Predictor. What, when and where is it? Redmond Poultry Predictor is a 4-mile trail run/walk with a unique twist. At the time of registration, participants predict their finishing time. There are no clocks, GPS, or timing devices allowed on the course, and the five closet runners to their predicted finishing time win! There is a time limit of 60 minutes and 100 people for the Predictor Division.

New this year, we are also offering a 4-Mile Run/Walk Division with age-group awards. In this Division, participants can use timing devices and the top male/female in each age-group will win awards.

What to can participants expect to see and do?
Live animals! The race takes place at our scenic working farm, Farrel-McWhirter Farm Park! The course is hilly but has rewarding downhills.

#2What do you consider to be the best part about the race? There are lots of Thanksgiving-themed races, but ours has the fun twist that you don’t have to be the fastest to win! In our first year, the closest predicted time came from an 11-year-old girl who had never run a single race before. Her predicted time was only .09 seconds off her finishing time!

How many participants do you expect for the race and how long has it been aroundWe expect around 150 runners and this is our 3rd year.

Does the Poultry Predictor benefit any charitable organizations? Yes, the race benefits Ethiopia Project and City of Redmond Parks and Recreation programs.

Do you organize other events as well? If so, which ones? Yes! We try to add a fun twist to our races. Here are the next ones coming up next!

Grass Lawn 5K Warm-Up Series every Wednesday in March and April 2014: : A series of affordable, chip-timed weekly 5K runs at Grass Lawn Park geared to get you ready for summer racing season.

Scrambled Egg 5K on April 19, 2014 : Empty eggs are scattered all over the course and each color is a time addition or deduction, but it’s a secret! Run straight through or try for your “best” time by picking up eggs.
