The XTERRA Turkey Trot is race #2 of the series and features three exciting courses: the 15k, 10k and the 5k fun run on the scenic trails at Trippet Ranch in Topanga State Park. The event field is limited, so enter early. See below for course preview run details.

Note: The event is now on Saturday after Thanksgiving Day! What better way to say thanks than running on the trails at Topanga State Park! The 5k is a fun run we do give out finisher medals, but we do not award age group medals. We will be posting times for all events at the race and online.
