Join Davis Turkey Trot
Set for the weekend before Thanksgiving, the Davis Turkey Trot features a flat, loop-style course that runs through downtown Davis, a city of some 65,000 souls that is home to the University of California-Davis in Northern California’s Sacramento Valley.
The race features a fast, flat course and runners can expect a fast finish!
Athletes will head east towards the Davis Co-Op, reminiscent of past turkey trot routes. However, instead of continuing down H Street and under the Covell bridge by the train tracks, a left-hand turn will bring athletes back to F Street and direct them North towards Covell. Athletes turn left and travel west on Covell until Catalina, at which they turn right and head towards the 5K and Half Marathon split. 5K athletes will turn right on to the first greenbelt (at the crosswalk), while Half Marathoners will turn left. This is at approximately mile 1.5. 5K entrants travel to the next “fork” in the bike path and turn right at the playground, head back over Covell via the footbridge, through Community Park/Davis High School and down B Street to the finish. There is one water stop on the 5K, located at approximately mile 2, by the Art Center soccer field.
Half Marathoners continue along the greenbelt to the wooden bridge that takes them to North Davis Farms Road. Athletes then turn left on to Sycamore and run a loop around the Davis Marketplace shopping center, over Hwy 113, and then past Sutter Davis Hospital on John Jones Road. The halfway point is located in the center of the Road 29 overcrossing over Hwy 113. Athletes continue past the Teichert Construction building and back down Sycamore (Road 100A). A left turn at North Davis Farms Road returns half marathoners to the greenbelt as they then head left around the northern perimeter of the North Davis greenbelt, winding their way back towards the Covell footbridge and the return to the finish line.
