2015 Oceanside Turkey Trot

The 10th annual race is one of the largest Thanksgiving Day races in the U.S.

The 10th annual Oceanside Turkey Trot took place Thursday morning in Oceanside, Calif., just north of San Diego. The race, one of the largest Turkey Trots in the U.S., had about 10,000 participants take part in either the 10K or 5K.

The 10K course featured a run on the famous Oceanside Pier and all the races finished on the Strand right next to the Pacific Ocean. This year’s race had a little extra challenge—the higher-than-normal “King Tides” hit San Diego County during the race, causing waves to splash onto the Strand as runners were heading down the home stretch.
