2022 BIG BEAR TURKEY TROT

Work up an appetite this Thanksgiving Day during the annual Turkey Trot. Walk, jog, or waddle like a turkey on the 3-mile course. The Big Bear Turkey Trot benefits local food pantries and Open Air Big Bear, a non-profit on a mission to advance outdoor events and activities in Big Bear.
