Big Bear Turkey Trot

Updated: Feb 4, 2023

Big Bear Lake, California is home to some of the most exciting running events in the country. On Thanksgiving morning, hundreds of runners will gather at Big Bear Lake for the annual Turkey Trot 5K race. The course takes participants around the lake's scenic trails and past beautiful views of pine trees and mountain peaks. The event has been held for over 15 years and is a favorite among local runners who come out every year to enjoy a good run with friends or family members. In addition to the Turkey Trot, Big Bear Lake also hosts several other races throughout the year including a half marathon in April, an eight-mile trail run in July, and a 10k race in October. All these events draw large crowds from across Southern California who come out to test themselves against nature and get some fresh air while doing it. Participants can expect plenty of support during their runs as well as post-race activities such as food vendors, live music performances, and awards ceremonies where top finishers are recognized for their achievements.Whether you're looking for your next challenge or just want to have some outdoor fun this holiday season - head on down to Big Bear Lake and join in on all that this amazing little town has to offer!
