The 4th Annual Big Bear Turkey Trot consists of 3 mile, 6 mile, and 9 mile Road Runs on Thanksgiving Day with Start/Finish line located at Meadow Park. This is a FUN event for the whole family. The run course is a relatively flat 3 mile loop through the neighborhood of Eagle Point, with 6 mile runners completing 2 laps and 9 mile runners completing 3, making it easy for all abilities to participate.
