Turkey Trot

I want to thank everyone who came out for this year’s South County Turkey Trot. We had more than 1,000 runners, walkers and joggers for the one mile, 5K and 10K. That was up from last year’s attendance of 300. The entry fee was a $1 donation to the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County. The total money raised this year was $9,000. This year’s event was held in memory of Christine Allen of SLO. Her family and friends (Team Allen) also took part in the run.

I want to thank all the volunteers and those who donated 900 bottles of water for the attendees.

See you next year at the beach.
