Choose Your Trot!

Stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, spinach-au-gratin, green beans with fried onions, home-made rolls AND the crown jewel – the TURKEY … ah that great holiday we hold dear is just around the corner. But before you tuck into that calorie-laden, once a year meal you can do something for the community and offset a few of those calories as well – the Turkey Trot! Avila Beach and Pismo Beach will each host an early-morning run/walk/jog benefitting the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo on Thanksgiving Day.
