Come join us for the 18th Annual Great Gobbler 5k and Lil' Gobbler Fun Run from Thursday, November 26, 2020 thru Sunday December 6, 2020! You may complete your race anytime during that period. Last year’s race was a huge success!!  The race will raise funds for Nashua North and South Boys' and Girls' Cross-Country programs, equipment and training. The cross-country teams at North and South work to keep students active, strive for academic excellence, and promote community service.  Registration is $20 adults, $15 for kids 1-18.  Through our timer (North Star Timing) and our race registration company (RunSignUp) this year we have access to RaceJoy which is a free GPS virtual race tracking app.  It allows entrants to run their 5k virtual race anywhere in the world (including the traditional Great Gobbler course) and the results are automatically uploaded to our results page.  We also will create virtual bibs and finishers certificates. If you cannot participate but still wish to support our cause, you still may donate by clicking on the “Donate” tab above.  We look forward to you joining us “virtually” sometime between Nov. 26, 2020 thru Dec. 6, 2020!! And a special thanks to our sponsors!
