Registration is open for the 16th annual Gobble Wobble. Sign up now to take part in the 5K run/2 mile walk.
Since the Gobble Wobble always takes place on Thanksgiving morning, it would be silly to tell you to “save the date”. But, for those of you who like to get in shape for the timed 5K, I like to share a friendly reminder around this time that it’s coming upon us.
The flock of runners will take off at 8:30 am. As usual, you can pick up your shirt and bib the day prior (Wednesday, November 23rd from 2:30 – 7:30 pm at Trottier Middle School) or that morning (starting at 7:00 am).
This year, the Online registration is available through November 23rd with an early bird registration cost of $35 per adult or $25 per participant 18 and younger (plus a $3.10/$2.50 online registration fee).
Additional discounts can be given to families with 5+ members if you reach out for a discount code. In person, the fee increases to $40/30.
Babysitting won’t be available this year. But it’s not an uncommon sight at the event to see families with little ones in strollers, backpacks, or tagging along. (Though, that’s more common for the walk than the run.)
The annual event is put on by Friends of Southborough Recreation (FOSR). Its their only big fundraiser to support community events, recreational programs and activities.
Reminder: FOSR is currently seeking volunteers to help them do the behind the scenes work necessary for running the annual community event and fundraiser. If you would like to help, or learn more, please email Recfriends@yahoo.com.
Updated (10/6/22 2:43 pm) FOSR updated that the babysitting won’t be available after all this year.
Updated (10/6/22 3:15 pm) Anyone interested in volunteering to help the day of the event or the day prior, can sign up here.
