Rory Leigh Correa's thoughts:


Looking for a fun way to spend your Thanksgiving morning before you chow down with the family? The Oakland Turkey Trot has it all - costumes, food, music, games & of course running! Take a quick loop around Oakland's Lake Merritt & finish at a party!

Packet Pick Up:

The Oakland Turkey Trot, like its partner race - Oaktown Half, provide multiple packet pickup options - including an 'Expo in a Box' in which will make you a box of goodies along with your big & shirt! I always choose to pick up at the Sports Basement because you get an additional 20% off when you show them your bib. Plus, its a really big place, so there is plenty of room & never any lines when picking up your stuff. Everyone there is always super nice & helpful.

Course Route:

Course Route is very simple, 5K = one loop around Lake Merritt.


You receive an awesome, soft t-shirt designed by local tee shop Oaklandish & a few other running goodies.


This year's medal simply says FeastMode in all gold - like a b-boy chain. :)
