Turkey Trot time is here! With the time change, the Super Moon gone and November in full effect, the holidays are here! While a lot of us are thinking of our plans for Thanksgiving, dinners, parties and all the social stuff that comes with them ( and all the eating around that), what a better way to kick off the Holiday Season with a Turkey Trot. Luckily for all us here in Orange County, there's plenty to choose from. Here's a list of the favorite or most known ones in the area:
- The Orange County Rescue Mission Turkey Trot 5k
The Orange County Rescue Mission will be hosting its 3rd Annual Turkey Trot OC 5k Run/Walk at the Village of Hope in Tustin on November 24, 2016. This special event will be held on Thanksgiving morning with the goal of raising enough support to provide over 30,000 meals for the hungry and homeless of Orange County. Last year’s event was a huge success with over 750 participants and we are hoping for an even greater turnout this year. We hope you will join us in this cause!
