It’s almost that time. Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, pumpkin pie… yep, it’s Thanksgiving! A day we all look forward to, especially when it comes to food. That being said, maybe a little jog would make you feel a bit better about indulging? If so, this year Big Bear has officially hopped on the Turkey Trot train and will be hosting its first annual run this Thanksgiving Day. The Big Bear Turkey Trot falls under the umbrella of Open Air Big Bear, and offers 3, 6, and 9 milers ranging from $35 – $45 (see course map below).
Good news is they start bright and early so you still have time to fit in all of your usual family traditions. Check-in at Meadow Park (41220 Park Ave Big Bear Lake, CA 92315) from 7 – 8:30AM and the trots get underway between 9 – 9:30AM. If you wish to participate, please register here before Tuesday (11/26) at midnight.
Open Air Big Bear encourages the whole family to join in on the fun. Walkers, joggers, trotters and sprinters are all welcome. There will be a costume contest (specifically bears and turkeys) and pie eating contest (after the run of course). Hope to see ya’ll there!
