The Turkey Trot Los Angeles invites runners ages ten and up to participate in friendly competition and family fun in downtown Los Angeles on Thanksgiving morning. Featuring scenic 5K and 10K courses that start and finish in front of City Hall, runners dressed in Thanksgiving costumes of turkeys, pilgrims, and pies will follow along Spring Street by the historic Grand Park, Disney Hall, and MOCA.

This event not only brings the fun before the feast, but also offers a chance to give back to those in need during the holidays through the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and other local charities. Families can bring little ones for the “Widdle Wobble” (ages 2-12), which allows children to run for fun around Grand Park. Participants also get to meet for memorable photo opportunities with the 20 foot tall turkey in front of the finish line at City Hall.

Turkey Trot Los Angeles

November 13, 2013 — Leave a comment

Yes, the rumors are true. The Turkey is arriving in Downtown Los Angeles on Thanksgiving morning. For years, DTLA has been wondering, where on earth is the turkey and the people? The search is now over. People, get ready for Turkey Trot Los Angeles!

Enjoy your Thanksgiving meal amongst fish and sea otters this year at the Aquarium of the Pacific. Feast on a traditional Thanksgiving buffet in the Aquarium’s Café Scuba and then explore the more than 11,000 animals from the Pacific on view. Definitely not your typical Thanksgiving setting!
