"Run like a beast before you feast"

Put your turkey in the oven, pack up the family and come and run or walk San Diego’s only Turkey Trot that has 3 distances to choose from:  15k (9.3 miles), 10k (6.2 miles), 5k (3.1 miles). Looking for a Thanksgiving Day run in San Diego where everyone can be happy?   Look no further!. Whether you want to walk the 5k or run your tail off on any of the 3 courses, everyone will have a blast this Thanksgiving at this year's San Diego South Bay Turkey Trot and Food Drive.

  • 5K (3.1 miles) that you can walk or run, bring a stroller or try to PR your fastest 3 mile run on a fast course
  • 10K (6.2 miles) a distance you can run/walk or race.  Fun, challenging and beautiful course where you won’t feel guilty for that extra helping of potatoes!
  • 15K (9.3 miles). Ok runners, this one’s for you!  Have an extra helping of stuffing with gravy and all the pie you want after you finish this course.  Enjoy the combination of road, dirt, and a climb up Otay Lakes Road with a fast downhill finish.  Beautiful, fun and challenging.

You must be able to complete any of the 3 races within 2 hours and 30 minutes (minimum average pace for 15K is 16min/mile)
