On Thanksgiving Day, approx. 8,000 runners will run in the Oceanside Turkey Trot (5K, 5-miler and kids’ runs). The races raise money for Oceanside Schools and local charities. Volunteers of all ages are needed for that morning. High school kids can get volunteer credit. Come join in the fun and be a part of a healthy, annual tradition in downtown Oceanside. It’s a great way to give back to your community. To register to run, go to: www.osideturkeytrot.com
