Turkeyfoot Trot Returns for 12th Year

The Turkeyfoot Trot 5K is coming back for its twelfth year.

Hosted by St. Vincent de Paul in Northern Kentucky, the run/walk is scheduled for Saturday, November 23, at 9 a.m. at Thomas More University.

There will be events for adults and children, with the headliner 5K race/walk with chip timing, a children's fun run, door prizes, and food.

John Lomax, anchor of Good Morning Cincinnati on WKRC/Channel 12, will emcee the event. Santa Claus is also expected to attend.

“We are excited to partner with St. Vincent de Paul again. The work that they do is inspiring and we love to support a great cause,” said Corey Sidebottom, senior vice president at Commonwealth Bank & Trust Company.

“The Turkeyfoot Trot is a fun and easy way for our community to give back to our neighbors in need. As a runner myself, I look forward to participating every year,” said Karen Zengel, executive director at St. Vincent de Paul.

All proceeds support St. Vincent de Paul programs in Northern Kentucky that bring hope and provide emergency assistance to those struggling to make ends meet. Last year SVDP raised $20,000 for the less fortunate in the community.

Pre-registration is now available online here through Thursday, November 21.

Pre-registration fees for the 5K are $25 for adults and $20 for children 14 years or younger.

T-shirts are sold separately for $10 each while supplies last.

In-person registration will be available at Tri-State Running Company during packet pick-up on Nov. 21 and 22.

Race day registration will start at 7:30 a.m. in Steigerwald Hall – Thomas More University’s Saint Center. Race day registration fees are $30 for adults and $25 for children 14 years or younger. 

Awards will be given in a variety of categories.
