The season started with a Turkey Trot and is wrapping up with another trip to Mont Tremblant, Canada.  As with any season of Ironman there have been many weekends of dedication and training... all for a cause.

Thank you for supporting our mission to fight cancer with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

This weekend we will be swimming 1.2 miles, riding 56 and running 13.1.  

Good luck to all of our teammates racing Mont Tremblant and to our counterparts racing the same distances at Pacific Crest in Oregon.

#GoTeam! Love,

9th Annual R&A Turkey Trot


And just like that the R&A turkey trot swag bags are SOLD OUT! You may still register but may get a voucher for a Chocolate Santa as See's is sold out of Turkeys too.

Thank you soooooo much everyone for the huge support this year. 

This pic was from the race course this morning! It's gonna be a beautiful hot one... be sure to hydrate and bring your bottle!


Golden Gobbler Day info-


Arrival and Route(s):

Please plan to arrive at Ocean and Washington in Santa Monica by 8:00 for an 8:15 start.   If you arrive late, you can try and catch up or meet the group at the end of the pier as we continue on the course. (Course Route: )

There also is a short course route for those that just want to head to the end of the Pier to be spectators for the Race for the Golden Gobbler. (Short Course Route)




I spoke with a SM Parking Enforcement officer and he said " we are going to be home with our familes fo feel free to park for free."   The official policy is below:

There should be plenty of metered spaces on Ocean.

Meters on Ocean are labeled “Enforced Daily.”  According to the City of Santa Monica website, “Parking meters will not be enforced on the following holidays except for meters that are enforced daily according to posted signage. Meters that are enforced daily must be paid on all weekdays, weekends, and holidays.” (the list included Thanksgiving,)  So feed the meter!


Alternatively, there should be free neighborhood street parking available as things are usually more open during holiday weekend and permit preference ends at 8am.


Turkey Swagbags and Race Bibs:

If you have registered on we will have your goodie bag ready before the start or you may also pick it up after we walk back to Ocean & Washington from the official finish at the top of the Santa Monica Pier ramp.  


This year we will have numbered race bibs.  When you check in with us you will receive your bib and safety pins. (If you have a triathlon race belt you should bring it.)


Thank you:

Thank you all so much for being part of the 9th Annual R&A Turkey Trot.  Together we have raised over $1,500 for an amazing cause, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  Please remember that this is a not a “traditional race” but a fun run with a competitive dash at the end.

Be Thankful for all the blessings we have and be Golden.

Thank you,

R&A Turkey Trot
Nov 17, 2017 by Amanda Prout

It's almost time for the 9th Annual  Team R&A Turkey Trot!

If you are in town, please join us Thanksgiving morning for our annual fun run to kick off the holiday.  For 6 years, it was just Ross & Amanda, but for the past few years the field opened to a few more friends.   In 2015, Colin Chambers was the first “Non-Prout”  to win the “Golden Gobbler” Medal.  Last year the field got even more competitive as Paul Choi won the Men’s division and Lisa Furomoto took first place for the Women.   Will they be able to go for the repeat?  Is there a new speedy turkey in the flock?  Will Colin redeem his former glory? Will there be a surprise winner?   Join us and find out.  Details are as follows:


This is a 4 mile group "Fun Run" from Ocean & Washington, down Entrada through the Tunnel, and along the beach path to the end of the Pier to regroup and take photos. Then the real "race" is from the end of the pier to the top of the ramp where the first Turkey to cross the Santa Monica arch will be declared the "Golden Gobbler!"  It’s a simple run, but the pacing might be more difficult than you think. It’s a Prout Thanksgiving tradition, now with a charitable aspect...


We are stepping  it up again this year and putting together Thanksgiving goodie bags that include a See's Candies Chocolate Turkey, Wild Turkey Whiskey Mini, Holiday Clif Bar, an Athlete’s aromatherapy recovery sampler by dōTERRA, lululemon coin purse and (maybe more!)

In addition we will be having commemorative race bibs by RoadID.  Although this is a fun run, and not really timed, the numbers will be a celebratory addition as this holiday run continues to grow.

We are suggesting a donation of $25 on this page to receive a lululemon swagbag and be eligible to win the title of "Golden Gobbler." - All donations go directly to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  (If you want to skip the bag and donation, you are welcome to enter the "Free Range Turkey" division and we still would love you to come out and run with friends)


We will meet at Ocean & Washington in Santa Monica for the official start at 8:15am.

Thank you for your support and Happy Thanksgiving!  


This is "Fun run," not a race.  Please keep it fun, including to the "competitive dash" to the finish.  We all have a lot to be thankful for, even if there can only be ONE Golden Gobbler! :)

(Yes, there still is a Men's, Woman's, and legacy division)

It takes more than one person to make up a team and that’s why I’m asking you to donate to my TNT fundraising page for TNT!


By participating as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) TNT, I am raising funds to help find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients.


Your donation will help fund treatments that save lives every day; like immunotherapies that use a person’s own immune system to kill cancer. You may not know it, but every single donation helps save a life with breakthrough therapies such as these.


Patients need these cures and they need your support.


Please make a donation in support of my efforts with Team In Training and help get us all closer to a world without blood cancers.


Thank you!
