Questions?

Great road race that takes off from Autumn Ridge Church, then after crossing Salem Road, you will run East on Salem Road, turn right onto Salem Ln SW and cut through a short grassy path to get onto the South Zumbro Trail.  There are a few steps leading down to the grass path.  Coming off of the grass you will turn left and be heading East on the South Zumbro Trail continuing on until the trail curves left back up toward Salem Road again. You will then run west along the trail next to West Circle Drive/Road until it merges with Salem Road again.  Stay on the left shoulder of Salem Road inside the cones until you reach the volunteer that will be assisting you in crossing the road again and returning you to the start/finish line!

Gobble Wobble 5K Trail Race Route

The middle portion of this race is on single track, semi-technically trails so make sure you break out those trail shoes and watch for roots, rocks, logs, and sand! Fun way to get your start in trail running. This route will not work with baby strollers.

Enjoy a family stroll around the neighborhood for a few miles before you head off to your Thanksgiving feast!

Lil Gobbler Turkey Trot Route

This all Off Road course will get kids moving for a good cause this Thanksgiving! Course will be on the grass grounds of Autumn Ridge Church so make sure your children dress appropriately for the weather.
