Gobble Wobble 5K & Mashed Potato Mile

Mon September 14 - Sun November 29 Marshall, MN 56258 US
Event: Gobble Wobble 5K
We are deeply saddened by the latest news, but the Marshall Area YMCA will not be hosting an in-person Gobble Wobble Race. We will instead decide to be positive and to a Virtual Race!

Without question, these changes are significant and difficult, but this is not the “Stay-at Home” Order that Minnesotans saw in March and April. However, we have learned important lessons during this pandemic and must take thoughtful action when we can to prevent the worst projected outcomes.

Though this year will look different, here is what you need to know:

The race is being transitioned to Virtual - This means that there will be no chipped timer or in-person event.
Participants will receive an email regarding their appropriate day for race bag and hoodie pick up. Once compiled, information will also add to the race website.
Race Bag and Hoodie Pick will occur on the following days and times:
Monday, November 23 from 5:30 - 7:00 PM
Tuesday, November 24 from 5:30 - 7:00 PM
Wednesday, November 25 from 5:30 - 7:00 PM
There is no pick up on Thanksgiving Day
The course will still be marked the day of the event to use.
When finished with the race, you are encouraged to enter your results in the following google form. Final results will be emailed out on Saturday evening by 7 PM.

We also encourage you to upload a picture of you finishing the race to our Marshall Area YMCA Facebook Page.
