What is a Virtual Run/Walk?
Because of the Covid-19, the State of California has banned all mass gathering events. So while we can’t meet up on Coast Highway for our usual Thanksgiving Day event, you are allowed to participate virtually! We are encouraging you to run or walk anywhere, anytime and post your time and photos in our “Results” and “Photo” pages. We also encourage you to post on social media using the hashtag #osideturkeytrot.
