42nd Annual Turkey Trot

November 16th, 2017

All roads lead to Vincent Lugo Park for the San Gabriel Turkey Trot! The 42nd annual edition of the Turkey Trot will be held on this Saturday, November 18th. Registration begins at 6:00 am at the Girl Scout building within Vincent Lugo Park. Then, at 7:00 am, both the 10k run and the 5k walk events will kick off. The 5k race starts at 7:25 am, and the Turkey Trot 1k  youth run commences at 8:15 am. Award ceremonies will take place in between races along with raffle drawings.

This annual event is one of the highlights of the Thanksgiving Day festivities in San Gabriel and it always attracts a big number of participants. The race is open for all and is now dubbed as this city’s healthiest and most fascinating family oriented event of the year. It is important to note that all the proceeds obtained from this race are ultimately used by the community to improve its various youth programs.

Besides the races, this year’s Turkey Trot will include a raffle drawing, medals for all who complete the courses, t-shirts and free refreshments. The top 3 finishers in each of the 9 age categories will also be awarded with a special medal. All of the 1st place finishers will each be rewarded with a gift card for a plump turkey.

The organizers of this San Gabriel Thanksgiving season family event encourage as many participants as possible to attend this run. Volunteers are welcome to help make the event a success and spaces are available for those who wish to host a booth.
