OCEANSIDE, CA. - Online registration is open for the 9th annual Pacific Marine Credit Union O'side Turkey Trot. This year's race is scheduled for Thanksgiving morning, November 27, in downtown Oceanside on what may be the most beautiful course for any Turkey Day run in America. The O'side Turkey Trot actually is a series of races, including a 5-mile run, a 5K, a Combo Run (both distances), and kids runs. (See race details.)
Last year, a record 10,000 "moved their feet before they ate." The big crowd helped the 2013 O'side Turkey Trot raise a record amount of money for local schools and non-profits. The event has now raised more than $180,000 for local groups and has a unique "choose your school or non-profit" option in which entrants can select the group of their choice to support on the online entry form. Also returning this year are the team competition, costume award contest, Expo, and bands. Watch for more details here and on the event's Facebook page. Register early to get the best prices.

At the front of a record crowd of 10,000 runners and walkers who moved their feet before they ate at Thanksgiving Day's Pacific Marine Credit Union O'side Turkey Trot, a former prep sub-4-minute miler won his biggest victory since starting a remarkable comeback from a serious cycling accident that left him with injuries so severe his doctor told his family he would never walk again. Read the race in review.
In addition to being the largest Pacific Marine Credit Union O'side Turkey Trot in history with 10,000 participants, the 2013 race established two other notable marks. Lukas Verzbicas of Chula Vista set a record for the 5 Mile Run with a time of 25:16, and Payton Simeon, 11, of San Marcos set a record in the Boys 11-12 Mile Run with a time of 5:48.
