Thanksgiving Day, November 25th, 2021    Go! Time: 8:00am  (Tom's Tiny Trot : 7:50am)

A Thanksgiving Day Tradition.   For 10 years, Go! Running has hosted the Go!bbler Turkey Trot in Little Rock. This 3, 4, or 6.5 mile family fun run and walk has grown into the undisputed way to begin Thanksgiving Day for thousands of families. This free family run only has one entry fee: canned good and non-perishable food items or money donations to the Arkansas Foodbank. In 2019 alone, this event attracted more than 2,200 people and collected enough food and donations to feed over 15,000 meals.  In 2020 we held a virtual event and you wonderful people still rasied 12,000 meals in food and cash donations. 

So, in 2021 We're Back!  FREE family run - simply bring a canned food or cash donation for the Arkansas Foodbank. Register to run and to be eligible for Prizes (to be announced).  Due to the costs we incur to put on this ever growing fun run, we are asking for an small optional donation that can be made during registration to offset the cost of additional expenses (like porta-potties, Police support, ambulance, water stops, and course markings).

Tom's Tiny Trot!   Yes, this is back too! A short fun run for our little runners and walkers, ages 0 to 8, who might not be able to take on the Go!bbler routes. It's a quick run around a closed course in the parking lot that starts and finishes under the same huge arch as the main event!  This year, the event will start BEFORE the main run, so the kids can have lots of people cheering them on!  Kids must be accompanied to the start by a parent or guardian, but you don't have to run with them on this spectator friendly course.  Just get them to the start and cheer them across the finish line!

T-Shirts! Now available for $25 at

SANTA will be there run morning to collect your canned goods, non-perishable food items, and cash donations as your entry fee into The Go!bbler Turkey Trot.  Get a picture with him, and it's a good chance to tell him how good you've been all year! 

The Courses:  Three fun courses that will cover many aspects of running such as road, track, trails, and other “surprises” that makes it a tour of beautiful Hillcrest and The Heights.  The race starts and finishes at Tipton Hurst / Sissy's Log Cabin.  Please note, there will be very limited traffic control on these courses and runners are responsible their own safety when crossing roads. Therefore a reminder. This is NOT A RACE so take your time and enjoy a fun morning run.

The options are 3 miles, 4 miles, and 6.5 miles. The 4 and 6.5 mile options ARE NOT stroller friendly, due to the technical single track trail.  One water stop will be on the course. It's at 2.25 miles on the 4 mile route and at 4.5 miles on the 6.5 mile route.
