Join the tradition!
Participants will be able to compete in the 2020 Gobble Jog from virtually anywhere from Nov. 1 - 26! Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Gobble Jog will be a virtual run and will not occur on the Marietta Square. We will miss seeing everyone come together on Thanksgiving morning, but we want to keep everyone safe and this was the best option to do so. We trust that you will continue to support this Thanksgiving Day tradition by running in a park, your neighborhood or your favorite training course with your family and neighbors! The need for food and support in our community is greater than ever! The pandemic has meant lost wages and jobs for countless Georgia families. So, please support our mission of ending hunger by registering at www.GobbleJog.org today! We will also still offer the Phantom runner opportunity, meaning that you won't be running but you still want to support MUST and receive a t-shirt.
