The City of Torrance Community Services Department invites the entire family to participate in our Annual Harry Sutter Memorial Turkey Trot Fun Run.  This three-mile fun run will begin at 8:00 a.m. on Thanksgiving morning.  After the fun run, there will be a spectacular post run prize drawing for mountain bikes, dinner vouchers, gym memberships and many other outstanding prizes.   All registered participants will receive a commemorative Turkey Trot shirt.  Please note, the Turkey Trot will take place rain or shine.

It’s easy to do, it’s fun, it’s affordable, and an inspiring way to start a great American Holiday, it’s the Annual TORRANCE TURKEY TROT!!
