Welcome to 11th Annual Johnston Health Gobble Waddle event presented by HealthQuest Fitness and Wellness Center. It is a timed run and fun walk event for all ages and fitness levels – definitely family, dog and stroller friendly.
The Thanksgiving holiday is a time of giving and it’s important to remember those in our community who need your help. All participants are asked to bring at least five items of canned food to the event or drop them off at HealthQuest. Canned goods will be donated to our partner food bank agencies right here in our community.
NEW! The Gobble Waddle is now a part of the Johnston Health Race Series. Now, you can register for both the Champions 5K/10K (April 13, 2019) and the Gobble Waddle 5K/10K (November 16, 2019) in one transaction. Two great races for two great causes – the Johnston Health Foundation Heart Fund & Healthy Kids Fund. Race series participants will receive a special long-sleeved commemorative t-shirt upon completion of both events.
WHY JOIN THE JOHNSTON HEALTH RACE SERIES?
Both events feature
1) USATF Certified Courses.
