Official Website


The 4th annual Rose Bowl Turkey Trot is a Pasadena family traditional 5k race historically on Thanksgiving morning around the Rose Bowl Stadium grounds. All entry fees for 2021 will be 100% tax-deductible and will go direct to the Rose Bowl Legacy Foundation’s America’s Stadium Needs America Campaign. Trot before you gobble and help preserve, protect and enhance the Rose Bowl Stadium!  To learn more about the Rose Bowl Legacy Foundation, or it’s America’s Stadium Needs America Campaign, visit www.inspire2022.org/weneedamerica

You have two options to participate. Option 1 is on Thanksgiving morning at the Rose Bowl Stadium. A timed race will go through a 3.1 mile course. All participants will receive a race bib and medal. Option 2 is a virtual race and can be done from anywhere from November 24th through November 26th. 

So what is a VIRTUAL event?

A virtual run/walk means that all registered participants would run or walk at a place of your own choosing. This could be your neighborhood park or running trail, bike path, quiet neighborhood streets or wherever walking and running is safely permitted. All participants are encouraged to use the Race Joy app to track their official time and automatically send in their finish time as well as listen to some special messages from Rose Bowl friends during your trot. In addition, a downloadable custom race bib will be available as well. All virtual race registrations prior to 11/15/21 will be mailed a medal. 

Don’t forget to post photos of your trot and tag @rosebowlstadium and @rosebowllegacy and use hashtag #MemoriesMakeUs
