The Dana Point Turkey Trot is the oldest Trot in California and is known, not only for its family-friendly activities, but for its breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and the Dana Point Harbor.
“There’s no doubt the Dana Point Turkey Trot is one of the most beautiful runs in America,” said Heather Johnston, Executive Director of the Dana Point Chamber of Commerce. Celebrated as one of “America’s Best Thanksgiving Day Runs” by Shape Magazine, the Turkey Trot is known for its dramatic bluffs, our beautiful harbor and flat race course. Plus, there’s something for the entire family. “Our Turkey Trot has, for 38 years, been a long-standing family tradition in Orange County and it’s our job to create lasting memories for families every Thanksgiving. It’s truly touching to see generations of families cross the finish line together.” This year’s race will be held on November 26th.
Sponsorships are available for this year’s race ranging from title sponsors to supporting partnerships. The Dana Point Turkey Trot is a great opportunity for local organizations and businesses to support a longstanding Orange County tradition with national recognition, influence tens of thousands of athletes, runners and their families, and millions more through media, all while supporting the local community and its non-profits.
