It’s almost Thanksgiving, which means the 35th annual Dana Point Turkey Trot is coming up.
The event that draws upwards of 16,000 participants every year is set to kick off November 21 with the Aviir Health and Wellness Expo.
The race itself will be held on November 22, with a few new twists added for this year. There will be special photo opportunities positioned throughout the course along with food and beverage sampling.
This year the Turkey Trot has teamed up with the Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group, which is asking that people consider sponsoring a Marine, their spouse or their child to run in this year’s Turkey Trot. Those interested can also make an additional donation to pay for a Thanksgiving dinner for a Marine and his/her family. Visit www.danapoint5thmarines.com to make a donation.
Turkey Trot race executive director Heather Johnston and Pete Hammer of the Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group will be on 100.3 “The Sound” on November 11 between 7:30 a.m. to 8 a.m. to promote and talk about the race and the new Marine support initiative.
This year there will be a 5K and 10K race, to find out more info or to register, visit www.turkeytrot.com.
