Race Tomorrow

Annual Turkey Trot swells in popularity
Event expected to draw 5,000 runners to beach Thursday morning

OCEANSIDE ---- In its third year, the Oceanside Turkey Trot expects to see about 5,000 runners and walkers, more than double the 2,200 galloping gobblers who ran the inaugural event in 2006, organizers said this week.

The race, which operates under the slogan "move your feet before you eat," brings a hungry horde to Oceanside's waterfront for five kilometers of early-morning pavement pounding.

Many arrive in turkey costumes, some come dressed as Native Americans. All are looking to burn a few calories to justify an extra helping of stuffing and gravy later in the day.
