O’side Turkey Trot
San Diego County’s largest Thanksgiving day running event is back with fun, fitness and festivities on Nov. 23, 2023. The O’side Turkey Trot attracts visitors from 46 States and 460 cities and benefits the Move Your Feet Before You Eat!® Foundation. Those interested in running, walking or trotting through Oceanside can choose from 5-mile, 5K and kids run courses.
Registration is now open for the 18th annual event.
The Trot will feature a costume contest, the largest teams competition and local live entertainment on the course. Trotters will receive race swag including finisher medals for all participants, free digital photos and participant shirts sporting brand new artwork that captures the O’side Turkey Trot spirit.
At the 2023 O’side Turkey Trot, the race will continue its efforts in giving back to the Oceanside community, as the race itself raises money for the Move Your Feet Before You Eat Foundation, which gives funding to nonprofits that serve O’side residents. To date, the Trot has raised over $470,000 for local causes.
