Turkey, cornbread dressing, pumpkin pie, football and family time…so many reasons to love about Thanksgiving! Did we mention pie? Each family has its own activities and traditions to look forward each year. The Village Green is thrilled that so many have added our 5K run/walk to their family's festivities. Unfortunately this year- y'all will have to Gobble DIY style. The 2020 Gobble on the Green 5K run/walk and 1 Mile Fun Run will be Virtual. While we're certainly going to miss seeing everyone - the decision to go virtual was not a difficult one to make. Everyone's health and safety is our/your priority.
This “Do It Yourself” Event will allow participants to run or walk at any time and any location that is convenient and safe for you and your families. Run around the block, on trails, go down to the track, or even run on a treadmill. You don't even have to live in Western NC - so please invite friends and family in other states or countries to join the fun.
While not required – you can submit your time for inclusion in the online “Just For Fun” Results. We will collect times beginning on Sunday November 21st until Sunday November 29th. Instructions on "How to submit your virtual times" are found below and will be included when you register. There will be No Overall or Age Group medals.
Online Registration will be the only option this year and will remain open until 5PM on Sunday November 29th. There will be no paper applications.
Everyone who signs up, regardless if you submit a time or not, will receive a fabulous Gobble on the Green 5K shirt. They will be available for pick up at the Village
