About 2,4000 people participated in the long-running annual race organized by Justin Rudd to benefit his nonprofit Community Action Team.
Before their Thanksgiving feasts, runners crowded the Long Beach shoreline this morning—many in turkey costumes or hats—for the annual Turkey Trot race.
More than 1,500 runners and walkers braved the cold and wet weather to take part in the 17th annual Long Beach Turkey Trot for Charity.

The Long Beach Turkey Trot has grown immensely from its humble beginnings 12 years ago, and if Justin Rudd has anything to say about it, this year’s installment of the Long Beach Turkey Trot will continue the tradition of the community coming together to “take a pre-emptive strike against the holiday bulge.”
