North County's Favorite Thanksgiving Day Tradition - Now Virtual for 2020

Recognized as one of the Top Trots in the country by Runner’s World Magazine and the Los Angeles Times, the trot attracts visitors from 46 States and 460 cities.

Welcome to the 2020 Virtual O’side Turkey Trot!  We hope you are all doing well and are looking forward to celebrating Thanksgiving and a healthy lifestyle anywhere and anytime in November. PLEASE READ BELOW FOR SOME IMPORTANT CHANGES TO OUR 2020 EVENT.

The State mandate does not allow mass gatherings. Therefore, we will not be organizing a Trot on Thanksgiving Day in Downtown Oceanside. We are encouraging you to do it anytime, anywhere in November as a virtual run/walk.

Virtual Trot means:

  • You can register your team and send out invites electronically.
  • We will be giving out $100 gift certificates to the top 15 largest teams
  • We will still be giving out $100 gift certificates to the 3 most popular registered trotters in costume at #osideturkeytrot
  • $5 still goes back to your favorite charity of choice!  
  • Medals will go to the first 2,500 who register.
  • You can have your medal and shirt mailed or pick up your shirt and medal on Nov. 14, 21 or 25th.
  • We will offer group incentive for registering 3 or more people at one time up to 12 registrations. Group discounts expire on Nov.14, 2020
