It's the First Annual Glens Falls Gobble Wobble 5k Run/Walk!
This premier 5K run will benefit Open Door's mission to serve those struggling with hunger and homelessness in our region. The event will be open for people of all ages and abilities. Individuals or teams can register online. Entrance fees are $20 for children under 12 and $25 for adults. Late registrations will be $30. Race day registration will begin at 226 Warren St. at 7:00 am with the race starting at 8:15 am.
The course will start at Open Door, circle through beautiful downtown Glens Falls and end back at the Mission. Kim Cook, President & CEO of Open Door said, "We are grateful to be picking up the baton for this community event and we hope to run with it for years to come. If your run is more of a wobble, register anyway! You'll be in great company. If you don't want to run or wobble, you can join the fun by volunteering. We expect that we will need around 80 volunteers to make this a great event." To volunteer click here.
The event will be an Adirondack Runner's Club Grand Prix event when they restart them in 2022. Christian Hanchett, Vice President of Adirondack Runners said, “We are very pleased and fortunate to be able to continue the healthy Glens Falls tradition of having a local 5K race on Thanksgiving! Please join us for this inaugural race! We are looking forward to a big turnout, a great time, and it’s for a great cause!” This year's Grand Marshall will be Gunnar from Adirondack Thunder. "We are so excited to work with Open Door Mission on another great event," Thunder Team President Jeff Mead said. "They do tremendous work throughout our community and we're thrilled to be a part of it. Having Gunnar as the Grand Marshall means a lot to us as an organization and we can't wait to see him and everyone else on Thanksgiving Day."
