The 2023 Wattle will take place on Grove City, Ohio's Buckeye Parkway. This will be our 12th Consecutive Wattle. We plan to offer a Primrose Children's Run, Turkey Leg 100-meter Run, 5K Walk/Run, and a 10-Mile Rotisserie Roll Bike Ride.  All of this is set for November 23, 2023. 

Participants in the Turkey Leg 100-meter Run, 5k Run/Walk, and 10-Mile Rotisserie Roll Bike Ride will receive a Pumpkin Pie at the Finish. Long sleeve shirts will also be given out at Event Week packet pick up. We will have music on the course, at the Finish Line and we will offer Finish Line Refreshments. There will be no water station on the course.

AGAIN IN 2023!

Finisher Medals will be available for $5 as an add-on item only. 750 in total will be ordered. This will help us keep our base pricing unchanged for 10 straight years, and only purchase a medal for those who desire it.


To be an event that is valued and available to the broadest family audience, we will have athletes of all abilities, some with visible and invisible disabilities accommodated at our event. We ask for your understanding and support as this is a key driver as to why we are not allowing pets to participate. Please contact marksigrist1@gmail.com for special circumstances where a trained support dog may be accommodated.
