A Thanksgiving Day Tradition.
Join over 2,000 runners, walkers, & holiday merrymakers for a little pre-turkey “trot”. Run/Walk options of 3, 4, or 6.5 mile routes include road, track and trail (4 & 6.5 mile have trail). This is NOT A RACE. Entry is “free” but bring a non-perishable food item we can donate to the Foodbank (or a cash donation if you don’t have time to go to the store). Last year your generosity enabled us to donate almost 15,000 meals to the Foodbank, right at the time of year they need it the most – Go!bblers, you rock!
Due to the popularity and increasing size of this event Go! Running incurs some significant expenses in order to provide the Foodbank with thousands of pounds of food. Therefore, as you register, we ask that you help us cover our expenses with an optional donation of $5, $10, or an amount you feel appropriate (porta-jons, insurance, course markings, ambulance, police support on the course, etc). We thank you for your support.
To Start, runners will line up in N Grant St, and will be allowed across Cantrell in waves to avoid congestion on the route. Please listen to instructions from our volunteers and Police. Please be patient, this is not a race, to maximize your enjoyment of this fun event

NEW in 2019 – The Tiny Trot!!
This if for our little runners and walkers, ages 0 to 8, who might not be able to take on the Go!bbler routes. This fun event will start 10 minutes after the Go!bbler participants take off. The closed course will be a short loop that starts and finishes in front of the shop. Kids must be accompanied, but you don’t have to run with them on this spectator friendly course. Just get them to the start line and cheer them across the finish line!
Costumes are encouraged and random prizes from Go! Running will be awarded run Morning.
Dogs? Sure, several people will bring their furry running buddy, but please only if they are good in big crowds and are fine with other dogs. Watch that leash!!!
Strollers? Sure, if you need to bring little one along, but please stay towards the back of the pack at the start and ONLY on the 3 mile route. The 4 and 6.5 routes have single track trail with obstacles and a steep hill that makes it impossible to navigate with a stroller.
Items that are needed by the foodbank:
mashed potato mix
canned sweet potatoes
mac and cheese
nuts, all varieties
Pies (shelf stable)
