In celebration of National Running Day, registration will launch on June 4th for the 37th Annual Dana Point Turkey Trot, named “one of America’s best Thanksgiving Day runs” by Fitness Magazine.
Known for its scenic coastal routes, beautiful weather, and family-friendly activities, the Dana Point Turkey Trot has become an Orange County institution, attracting more than 17,000 participants annually, to its 5K, 10K, Kids’ Gobble Wobble, and two-day Health & Wellness Expo.
“The 37th Turkey Trot will be bigger and better than ever,” said Heather Johnston, Executive Director of the Dana Point Chamber of Commerce. Early details on new enhancements for this year’s race include:
- New on-course entertainment
- A post-race beer garden
- Expanded Health & Wellness Expo
“The Dana Point Turkey Trot is the premier trot in Southern California and has been named one of the top 3 destinations in the world for Thanksgiving by Fodor’s Travel. Our Turkey Trot is the perfect place to bring your family to run the race before your stuff your face.”
The Dana Point Turkey Trot is also calling for sponsors for this year’s event, ranging from title sponsors to supporting levels. The event is a great opportunity for local organizations and businesses to support a longstanding Orange County tradition with national recognition, influence tens of thousands of athletes, runners and their families, and millions more through media, all while supporting the local community.
