Where is the event going to be taking place?
Why aren’t we gathering in the Dana Point Harbor like usual?
Per Governor Gavin Newsom’s orders, large events and gatherings are not currently permitted to happen. Trust us, we would love to spend the day on the water, feeling the cool ocean breeze while seeing all of your smiling faces, but it’s just not in the cards for 2020.
Should you choose to still run your route in the Harbor, please run on sidewalks where possible, and face oncoming traffic on road shoulders where sidewalks are not available so that you can see what is coming toward you at any given time. Consider wearing no headphones, or above-ear headphones that are not noise-canceling, so that you may hear what is going on around you.
How do I get my race packet (shirt and medal)?
There are two ways to ensure that you receive your race day packet:
Ship It: We are happy to mail you your race day packet! To ensure that you receive it by Thanksgiving, you must be registered by November 13 (for domestic mailings… please register by November 1 to ensure international delivery).
When registering, please check the box that indicates you’d like your items shipped to you. There is an additional charge.
Packet Pick-up: Live locally and prefer to save the shipping costs? Join us in the Dana Point Harbor on Saturday, November 21 and Sunday, November 22 from 10am – 4pm for a drive-thru packet pick-up. Have your registration confirmation email handy as well as your ID. If you are picking up packets for family members, remember to have them fill out a pick-up waiver so you can grab their items as well.

If I don’t live in Dana Point, can I still register?
Of course! We get runners from all over the country who register for the Turkey Trot. The silver lining of the race being virtual this year is that there is no limit to where you can trot – near, far, where ever you are!
How do I submit my race time?
Can my business place an offer in the Virtual Event Bag?
In lieu of a traditional goody bag, we offer our participants a Virtual Goody Bag! Not only is a virtual goody bag more environmentally friendly, but it offers a longer opportunity to advertise to our participants (60+ days)! The Virtual Goody Bag is sent to all participants of the Dana Point Turkey Trot Race, as well as our volunteers.
If would like information on placing an ad in the runner’s virtual goody bag, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
What is included in the 2020 Virtual Race?
