Tammany Turkey Trot

Thu November 25, 2021 Covington, LA 70433 US Directions
Course Information

Athletes will start their Thanksgiving run with the Northshore Food Bank 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 Courthouse! 

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 back to downtown.
