You know my go-to for SoCal fun runs is Caren Ware Events! We had so much fun celebrating Thanksgiving with this turkey trot in Anaheim!
As with all Caren Ware Events, we signed up for this race online. The race location was one I hadn’t previously been to, but parking was in the same lot as the starting line, and was free! The pre-race atmosphere was fun and lively, with music, a turkey meet-and-greet and pop-up tents offering free samples!
This course is a simple out and back, with a few small hills, but very walkable and stroller-friendly. Due to the course being near the open waterway, it was surprisingly windy! There was a water station at the turnaround point, as well as volunteers helping guide runners and take finish line photos.
After the race, we took more photos with the super cute turkey meet-and-greet and enjoyed some post-race snacks! As always, Caren Ware Events makes BEAUTIFUL, BIG medals, perfect for showing off on a medal display!
- Honestly, even though the sun was out and it was fairly warm, I wish I had worn a light jacket or a long-sleeve shirt, as the course was surprisingly windy!
If you’re looking for a run to bring your kids on, this is a great option, as the course is very manageable and there’s a great pre/post-race atmosphere. Caren Ware Events knows how to throw a fun run!
