The Bay Point Turket Trot 5K and Family Fun Run benefits a cause dear to our community's heart, the Wesley Burnham Foundation.  This amazing foundation provides pre-school scholarships and music program funding to honor the life and legacy of two-year-old Wesley Burnham.  Participants will enjoy a scenic route through the beautiful Bay Point Community, filled with marina and gold course views- and encouraging cheers from the neighbors. This event continues to grow and brings our community and visitors closer together. 

Participants will receive a Wesley Burnham Foundation drawstring bag, race t-shirt, commemorative race bib and medal.  Family and friends are welcome to join in to cheer participants on and enjoy in the festivities which include: bounce house, DJ Markie Mark, face painting, and much more!  Don't miss out on this wonderful family event!
