Welcome to the 12th Annual Gobble Waddle event presented by HealthQuest Fitness and Wellness Center. After careful consideration of recommendations concerning the COVID-19 virus, the 2020 Gobble Waddle 5K/10K will be a VIRTUAL walk/run. We will miss seeing your smiles as you sip hot chocolate by the finish line, but our top priority is protecting you. However, we know a great need still exists in our community and to continue providing support to the Heart Fund and Healthy Kids Fund, we can’t quit before we start. We invite you to be a part of this exciting virtual walk/run concept – at your own pace, in your own space!
From Saturday, Nov. 14 – Saturday, Nov. 21, you can run, jog or walk from any location you choose – in your neighborhood, on a trail or track, or on a treadmill.
If you registered for the Gobble Waddle before August 1, your registration has been transferred to the virtual event and no further action is required. If you have not yet registered, you are welcome to join us. Your registration will include a bib, t-shirt and finisher medal. Preferred t-shirt sizes are not guaranteed for those registering after October 20.
Participant packets will be mailed on Nov. 6. We encourage you to wear your shirt, bib and medal during your walk/run and share photos on our Facebook event page. Please note: packets for registration received after Nov. 6 will be mailed out as soon as possible, but there is no guarantee that the packet will arrive prior to event week.
Keeping with tradition and to address food insecurity in Johnston County, HealthQuest will still collect canned goods to support local food banks at Temple Baptist Church, Sharon Baptist Church, Hinnant Outreach Center, and the Johnston Health Cardiopulmonary Rehab Center’s Blessing Corner. Donations may be dropped off at HealthQuest in the Johnston Health Medical Mall by Nov. 21.
