5K Run/Walk


We appreciate your participation in the past and hope that you will join us again this year to support our NKY neighbors in need. This event helps our neighbors who are struggling during the holidays. All proceeds from the race benefit St. Vincent de Paul Northern Kentucky parish conferences who assist with the mission of helping our neighbors in need with food, rent/utility assistance, clothing, household furnishings and more.

Our 5k run/walk is going VIRTUAL this year! That means you choose the time, day, and location of your 5k! We will have maps for your convenience that you can use if you would like to. It will include some of our Scavenger Hunt locations along the way. 

Our after-party with all those prizes has always been a unique component of our race, so this year we have added  a SCAVENGER HUNT and a Point System to win PRIZES! The scavenger hunt will consist of three or more locations in each county including: Kenton, Boone, and Campbell. Each location will be at one our Turkeyfoot Trot sponsor's business and will be marked with a Turkeyfoot Trot sign. At each location you can earn a point into a drawing for PRIZES. All you have to do is take a picture of yourself and post it on social media and tag us or email the picture to us! See below for more details.
