Inaugural Tammany Turkey Trot

Published by:

The Inaugural 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?
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 runners will head slightly west towards Jefferson Street before turning north. From there, it’s a straight shot for home!
5 Mile runners will finish with a scenic jaunt further south past more beautiful homes before rejoining with the 5K course and heading north on Jefferson. The event takes place Thursday, Nov. 22, 2018, from 8 – 10 a.m. To benefit the North Shore Food Bank.
