The City of Covington presents the 2nd annual Tammany Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day, November 28, 2019. The fun, family event is also a food drive and fundraiser for the Northshore Food Bank.

The Tammany Turkey Trot is like a highlight reel of the areas that make Covington & St. Tammany such a great place to live. Ready to experience the history of downtown Covington, or show it off to your visiting family and friends? Here's your chance to #EarnYourStuffing!

Athletes will start their Thanksgiving run with the St. Tammany Courthouse as their backdrop just north of downtown Covington. From there, both 5K and 5 mile runners will make their way through downtown and into the splendor of moss-covered trees that line the streets. At St. Paul's High School, 917 S. Jahncke Street, runners will head slightly west toward Jefferson Street before turning north. From there, it's a straight shot for home!

5-Mile runners will finish their Turkey "tour" with a scenic jaunt further south past more beautiful homes before rejoining with the 5K course and heading north on Jefferson.

Each runner is encouraged to bring three non-perishable canned food items to help "pack the pantry" at the Northshore Food Bank. For every three items donated, runners will be entered into a drawing for one of two pairs of running shoes.
