THANKS FOR JOINING US FOR THE 8TH ANNUAL
PALISADES DEVELOPMENT TURKEY TROT
Pacific Palisades 2022
Runners, joggers, walkers and strollers will all converge once again this Thanksgiving morning to compete at The 8th Annual Palisades Development Turkey Trot.
The holiday 5K & 10K will be held at Palisades Charter High School on November 24th, starting promptly at 8:00 AM. Running now for the 8th time, the event is expected to draw 2,000 participants and 1,500 spectators across Pacific Palisades in what has become a fun, family, community tradition dating back to 2013.
“We are delighted to bring back the Turkey Trot back to Pacific Palisades after a two-year hiatus,” says David O’Connell, event founder. “We know our community loves to run and be outdoors with their families. And there’s no better way to get their holiday season off to a happy, healthy start. We are ecstatic with the level of support we have received from both runners and sponsors alike in our community and look forward to seeing everyone on Thanksgiving!”
This year’s event will feature the same 5K and 10K course routes participants have come to expect. Each runner will receive a t-shirt, a complimentary swag bag and a chip-timed bib with results posted shortly after the race at www.paliturkeytrot.com/results
The Swarthmore Room will be pick-up spot for registered runners to grab their numbers, pins, t-shirts and swag bags the days leading up to the event. Packet pick-up takes place Monday (November 21), Tuesday (November 22) and Wednesday (November 23) and the event organizers are strongly urging runners to come to Palisades Village one of those days to pick up their gear early and avoid lines on Thanksgiving morning.
