Now in its fifth consecutive year, the Gobble Wobble Road Race has become a Thanksgiving tradition in Southborough. Runners and walkers from Southborough and surrounding towns are invited to come and enjoy the fun. Proceeds from the race benefit the Friends of Southborough Recreation.

The event, as much social as it is athletic, takes place on Thanksgiving morning – Thursday, November 24 – at Trottier Middle School. The race starts at 8:30 am.

For runners there is a 5K race. New this year, the race will be a certified course and timing chips will be used. Monetary prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female finishers. In addition to the 5K, there is also a 2-mile walk and a free fun run for the kids.

You can sign up online or drop this form off at the Recreation Department (21 Highland Street). The cost is $25 for both the 5K run and the 2-mile walk. Advanced registration ends on November 22 for the run and November 23 for the walk. All registered adults will receive a long-sleeve athletic t-shirt along with a Table Talk Pie.

The Gobble Wobble is made possible thanks to the support of a number of sponsors, including Roche Bros, Long Automotive Group, Capital Group Properties, Middlesex Bank, The New England Center for Children, The Fay School, Domino’s Pizza, Southborough Village Preschool, Trombetta’s Farm, Table Talk Pies, NRG Bar, Global Printing and Packaging, and Nancy Gould Photography.
