On Thanksgiving morning, more than 10,000 runners will come to the Marietta Square to participate in the 19th Annual Gobble Jog, benefiting MUST Ministries. Almost 300 volunteers will be on hand to support these runners.
The Gobble Jog offers options for all skill levels. Timed 10K and 5K runs, as well as an untimed 5K, 1K and Tot Trot are all available. Participants come from all over the country to participate in the run with their families - 41 states were represented in 2019. Our largest teams are from area companies, schools and churches who come together that day to support our mission. We will still offer the Phantom or Virtual runner option and you will still receive a t-shirt.
Registration is open at www.GobbleJog.org
