About Us

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 and seeing all 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!

Produced by the Dana Point Chamber of Commerce in partnership with A Running Legacy, the Dana Point Turkey Trot is the nation’s sixth largest turkey trot in the country. Named one of America’s best Thanksgiving Day runs by Fitness Magazine, the Dana Point Turkey Trot has become an Orange County tradition, attracting more than 17,000 participants, including friends and family, in its 5K, 10K, Kids’ Gobble Wobble, and two-day health and fitness 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 and named the #1 Best Turkey Trot in America by Daily Burn.

From beginners to elite runners, this event is for everyone!
