Review of Dana Point Turkey Trot by mid pack

Posted by: on October, 29 2012

This is a BIG event. If you’re looking for a small community Turkey Trot look somewhere else. It has the feel of a half marathon/marathon. I suggest you get there early. Parking can be a bit difficult as is the case with any beach city. I would also suggest picking up your bib/packet the day before the race to avoid the long lines. The course is very good with great views along Dana Pt. Support was adequate and the post race expo seemed decent although I didn’t stick around. Good race to ease the guilt of how much you end up eating later in the day!
