One of the largest turkey trots in the nation, this race is a USA Track & Field (USATF) sanctioned and certified event.

Prize money is awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place male and female finishers in the 10K race.

There is also a Costume Contest with awards for Best Kid, Best Adult, and Best Group Costumes. Participants are encouraged to dress up in their favorite costume to be eligible to win amazing prizes courtesy of our partners.

The Dana Point Turkey Trot is owned and produced by the Dana Point Chamber of Commerce. Since it’s inception, the trot has raised more than half a million dollars for local nonprofit organizations. Our organization is a big believer in giving back and supporting fellow nonprofits.

This year, a portion of the race’s proceeds will benefit the Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group and South County Outreach.

Participants can also make additional donations to these deserving organizations during online registration checkout.

We will also be hosting a Food Drive and Toy Drive onsite during the Expo & Packet Pick-Up hours for our partners.


The Dana Point Turkey Trot is a great opportunity for local organizations and businesses to support a longstanding Orange County tradition with national recognition and tens of thousands of participants.
