Participate in Rose Bowl Turkey Trot — From Virtually Anywhere

The third annual Rose Bowl Turkey Trot just got bigger by taking on the world and coming to your city, virtually. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Pasadena family event is pivoting from its typical setup, a 5K trot around the stadium on Thanksgiving morning, and allowing anyone to participate no matter where they are by sharing in this year’s virtual format. Runners, trotters, skippers and jumpers can continue the young tradition from the comfort and safety of their favorite running path.
Participants will be given a window to join the fun by racing between Wednesday, Nov. 25, at 6 a.m. and Friday, Nov. 27, at 8 p.m. All entry fees for 2020 are tax deductible and go directly 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.

Traditionally known as a day of fireworks, picnics and getting together with friends, Independence Day now has a new meaning for several military spouses: a day of pampering.
Sponsored by the Rose Bowl Legacy Foundation in conjunction with 870-AM, about 30 military spouses were treated to a variety of pleasantries at the Rose Bowl on the morning of July 4.
Lauren Hall, marketing specialist for the Rose Bowl, said the event — the first of its kind — was designed to keep participants’ minds off of everything.
“They’ve come to enjoy breakfast and coffee,” Hall said. “It’s a day they’ve come to relax without children, without spouses, without worrying about anything.”

David Misch had watched his share of Rose Bowl games on TV, but his first one as a fan inside the stadium this year was one for the books.
Misch hopes to make sure people hear about this and every other game that’s been played at America’s stadium since the inaugural kickoff in 1922. And every concert. And every rally. And everything, really.
Misch, a member of the Rose Bowl Legacy Foundation Advisory Board and the CEO of Pasadena-based Community Bank, is a Cleveland native who earned both of his degrees from Penn State. He had settled in Pittsburgh and, quite naturally, became a Steelers fan. In 2006, he relocated to Southern California for work and was hired at Community Bank four years ago.
