The Friends of Southborough Recreation asked me to pass along their thanks to all the participants, volunteers, and sponsors who helped make this year’s Gobble Wobble road race a success.

“We were lucky to have tremendous community support this year,” Melissa Shields, President of the Friends of Southborough Recreation, said.

In all, more than 1,000 participants walked, ran, and in some cases, wobbled to the finish line on Thanksgiving morning. About 75 volunteers helped keep things running leading up to the event, as well as on race day.
