Since the Gobble Wobble always takes place on Thanksgiving, it would be silly to tell you to “save the date”. But, for those of you who like to get in shape for the 5K run, this is a friendly reminder that it’s coming upon us.

For those of you unfamiliar, Southborough’s Gobble Wobble is a 9 year old tradition. Locals earn their Thanksgiving dinners while supporting the Friends of Southborough Recreation.

In past years over 1,000 locals flocked to run the 5K or strut their stuff through the 2 mile walk. And many kids whooped their way through the free Fun Run.

(Last year, numbers were a little lower with a Thanksgiving eve storm that cancelled the Fun Run. But there was still a surprisingly good turnout.)

Remember, this is a fundraiser. So, even if you aren’t interested in running, you can offer support by volunteering.
