Tradition Can’t Be Canceled

The Dana Point Turkey Trot has been a beloved Orange County tradition for 43 years, and we all know you just don’t give up on tradition! To accommodate the modifications put in place and ensure that our racing family remains healthy and safe, we’ve decided to change course and burn those pre-Thanksgiving meal calories, virtually. We’ll miss gathering together and seeing all of your dedicated, smiling faces, but nothing will stop us from supporting our local charities and running the race before we stuff our face – but in our own place!

Our initial order of medals and t-shirts sold out, but due to popular demand, we’ve ordered an additional run of commemorative t-shirts – this is your last chance to gather your flock and secure your shirt.



Register online for either the 5k, 10k, 15k or the Kids Gobble Wobble

pick- up packet

Shirts and medals can be picked locally the weekend before Thanksgiving, or mailed to you (for an additional charge).

RUN (on your own)!

Pick your course, run, walk or bike your course and you’re done!

Because of YOU we were able to collectively raise $5,000 for this year’s charity partners: @familyassistance and @marinecorpsleaguesc022 🎉

Canned food items and toys were also donated at the Drive-Thru Packet Pick-Up.

We can’t say it enough - thank you, thank you, thank you!
