Surfside Beach Turkey Trot

One of the most popular Thanksgiving Day events along the Grand Strand, the Surfside Beach Turkey Trot begins and ends at the Surfside Pier. The Turkey Trot is a locally organized event and features a 10K, 5K and 1-mile run as well as a Tot Trot (Kid's run in the Tot Trot for FREE).
