It's all about South Bay in the Fall

The 3rd Annual San Diego South Bay Turkey Trot is held at Rohr Park in beautiful Bonita, CA.  What’s more perfect than a country-feel run in the Fall?  Conveniently located just 15 minutes South of Mission Valley off I-805, 15 minutes from the East County and 25 minutes south of La Jolla.  Easy access and easy parking.  Great after party with awards, food and prizes.

Feeding those less fortunate on Thanksgiving:  We are on a mission to make sure no one goes hungry on Thanksgiving.  Bring a non-perishable food item to bib pick up or on race day and help those who cannot help themselves.  You can make a difference!
