The Tammany Turkey Trot takes to the streets of Covington again on Thanksgiving morning. Ready to experience the history of downtown Covington, or show it off to your visiting family and friends? Here’s your chance to #EarnYourTurkey!
The 5K Run/Walk registration fee is $25 until September 19, $40 thereafter. The 5 Mile Run/Walk fee is $30 until September 19, $45 thereafter. Both races start at 8 a.m. Register at https://www.tammanyturkeytrot.com/Race/Info/LA/Covington/TammanyTurkeyTrot.
Athletes will start their Thanksgiving run with the Northshore Food Bank, 701 N. Columbia St., 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. Close to St. Paul’s High School runners will head slightly west before turning north. From there, it’s a return trip for the finish line at the St. Tammany Parish Justice Center.
Five-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 back to downtown.
