Sport Spectrum Turkey Trot

November 28, 2019

Sport Spectrum Turkey Trot will be held at the Common Park in Shreveport on Thursday, November 28 at 8 a.m.
Registration is $15 and up.

The Turkey Trot will begin at The Common Park A 2.5-acre urban park in the heart of the blossoming revitalization of a long-neglected nine-block western edge of Shreveport straddling the major thruway to Downtown, Common Street, and thus named Shreveport Common. For two months and during the Thanksgiving weekend you and your family will be able to take in “Rainbow City,” a never-before-seen-in-the-South installation of 43 soaring inflated colorful, zany characters ranging from 12’ to 50’ tall. We are excited to be a part of Shreveport’s first Downtown urban park and greenspace.

This year's race will start and finish at the new Common Park. Run past the Municipal Auditorium, down Elvis Presley Drive, past the historic Strand Theatre, wind through downtown Shreveport, through Oakland Cemetery and back to the finish and enjoy the sights and sounds of Shreveport's new green space.
