Turkey Trot Los Angeles
Inaugural Downtown LA Turkey Trot 10k Can we say 6.2 miles of everything? Just like the 5k, this race starts in front of City Hall and then heads towards the heart of Los Angeles, El Pueblo! Runners zip by Old China Town to the North and by the Los Angeles State Historic Park and U-Turn before the LA River (turkeys don't swim). Runners then head back towards Grand Park, past the festivities (and cheering turkeys) and loops up and around Grand Park. Participants will then continue on a historic course along Spring Street, referred to as the Wall Street of the West! You'll past by such notable buildings as the Contintental Building (LA's first skyscraper), The Hellman Building, El Dorado Hotel, Crocker Bank and more. The course takes runners up 8th Street, another great downtown street. Runners do a U-Turn at Flower and then return to City Hall / Grand Park for the finish (there's a small uphill near the finish)!
