Ready, Set, Gallop (Virtually)!
The Gobble Gallop has gone completely virtual.
Keep the tradition alive! Join us for the Virtual Gobble Gallop, Tough Turkey 1 Mile, or Gobble Giddy Up Kids’ ¼ Mile. This Thanksgiving tradition is a great way to create a fun experience with your family. Do it together, even if you have to be apart. Build your own course based on the race options.
Tune in Live on Race Day! We are bringing back the original schedule of events which you can tune into via Facebook or Instagram Live.
9:00am: Want to see what it would look like to have two turkeys race? We begin with the Gobble Giddy Up ¼ mile, where our two turkeys duke it out for a ¼ mile. Which turkey is going to take home the gold in the Giddy up?
9:10am: The Tough Turkey 1 Mile Kicks off! See Alisha and Kelcie go head-to-head in a 1 mile race. Who will win the prize for the toughest turkey?
9:30am: We commence with the main course: the Gobble Gallop 5K. Tune in with us as we all run the Gobble Gallop 5K with you.
Participate to win prizes!
Why this event went virtual:
We came to this very difficult decision after much consideration among the events staff and consultation with our partners at the City of Duluth and Essentia Health.
For the 15th Anniversary of this event we were looking forward to celebrating it with you in person, even in a smaller capacity. However, due to the new gathering guidelines put in place by Governor Walz on Tuesday, November 10th and the peaking numbers of those affected by Covid-19 in St. Louis County, we feel it is in the best interest of our athletes, staff, volunteers and our community as a whole to not host this event in person. We are an organization that promotes health and wellness, and the last thing we want to do is jeopardize the health of the community we serve.
This event is non-refundable.
