Virtual Gobble Wobble: Registration closing this Thursday, Nov 19th

Earlier this fall, I shared that Southborough Recreation’s Gobble Wobble will be offered virtually this year. I also shared an early bird deadline (that has passed). One detail that I missed, is a final registration deadline.

Rec is promoting that this Thursday, November 19th is the deadline to register. (It’s an important detail to stress, since it’s a full week before Thanksgiving. In past years, participants could sign up as late as Thanksgiving morning.)

Below are the remaining details from an earlier post.

The community isn’t being invited to flock to the race route on Thanksgiving. Instead, participants are invited to walk or run a 5K route of their choosing anytime during the week of Thanksgiving. Winners will still be named, but they’re operating on the honor system.

As always, the event proceeds go to Friends of Southborough Recreation. Registration is a flat $25 this year.

Participants are encouraged to still make it festive by coordinating with friends/family:

Join the Friends of Southborough Recreation as we run the 14th Annual Gobble Wobble Thanksgiving 5k. This year we will be VIRTUAL!

Run, Walk, or Wobble your way to completing a 5k run or walk (3.1 miles) between November 22 and 28. This 5k can be done anywhere you feel comfortable and with as many friends and family as you can find!

Submit your 5k times to Southborough Recreation by emailing All 5k times will be posted online on November 30th, 2020. Winners will be crowned for overall male and female times.

The cost of the 5k this year is $25 and includes a long sleeve shirt! A shirt pick up date will be announced prior to the race window time. 100% of proceeds will be collected and put towards program scholarships for Southborough Recreation after school programs, summer camp programming, and miscellaneous recreation offerings.
