The Pacific Marine Credit Union O'side Turkey Trot has enjoyed quite a run as it prepares to celebrate its 10th anniversary on Nov. 26. The running turkey logo first debuted in 2006. Since then, the race has become a holiday tradition in North County, with 10,000 running and walking in 2014. All that has helped raise more than $210,000 for local schools and non-profit organizations over the years. Be a part of the fun this Thanksgiving!
Celebrate 10 years running!
Thanks to PMCU, all participants will receive access to free digital Turkey Trot photos for sharing the memories. Ideal for printing. Check back for details.
The new 10K course is shown in red on the map above. A larger version of the map can be viewed on the Course Map page. Watch for more details about this exciting new distance.
All participants receive a royal blue, high tech, moisture wicking shirt! With the 10-year, surf board logo, this shirt is sure to become an instant classic. It will be available in women's (right above) and unisex (left above) styles.
