Event Registration

Pacific Marine Credit Union Oceanside Turkey Trot


More than 9,000 runners and walkers from 46 states are expected to flock to scenic Oceanside, Calif. to “move their feet before they eat” at the 12th Annual Pacific Marine Credit Union O’side Turkey Trot and kids run set for Thanksgiving Day, November 23.

Featuring scenic tours of this classic California beach community, the 10k and 5K run/walk will kick off at 6:55 a.m. and 8:10 a.m. respectively, starting on historic Highway 101 at the Civic Center (located at 330 N. Coast Highway) and finishing on The Strand just south of the iconic Oceanside Pier. A 5K walk begins at 8:45 a.m. All races feature live entertainment along the courses.

“The morning run and walk has quickly become an annual Thanksgiving tradition for many families, not only for local San Diego County residents but for those who travel here for the holiday weekend,” said Kathy Kinane, race director and president of Kinane Events.

The family-oriented event also includes one- to ¼-mile kids runs starting at 10:30 a.m., and a 3-day expo. New this year, the O’side Trot will have a $1,000 Costume Contest prize purse.

“The primary objective of the Turkey Trot is to get families outside and active together on a day that people routinely stay in,” said Kinane.
