The Gobble Wobble 5K has been postponed until spring. 


Due to Governor Scott's announcement of new restrictions to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, we are postponing the Gobble Wobble Turkey Trot. We will wait for further guidance from the state before we decide on a new date, but we are planning on spring. Shirts have been ordered and are currently being processed. If you would prefer a refund, please let us know, otherwise, we will email when the shirts are in and ready to mail out.


Thank you for your understanding. We are disappointed, but safety is our top priority.

The Barre Congregational Church is excited to announce that the Gobble Wobble Turkey Trot will be held this year, with COVID-19 precautions in place, on November 26th from 8am-10am. Runners must register in advance and will be placed into socially-distanced groups with staggered start times (Please arrive no more than 30 minutes prior to your designated start time to help us ensure we are complying with social distancing guidelines).  Please refer to this link for current guidance from the State of Vermont on outdoor recreation.

The race start and finish line is in front of Barre Town School in the bus drop-off area.

All participants must be masked until they reach the starting line and from the end of the run back to their car. Strollers and dogs on a leash are welcomed!  AND.... costumes encouraged~Get creative!


There will be NO race registration fees this year, but we are accepting donations that will be used toward our Mission and Outreach efforts including Laundry Love (a program that helps low-income families with laundry expenses), food resources for unhoused people in the community, holiday resources for community members, and many other programs. Online registration will be open until November 20th. Shirts are available for purchase at the time of registration until Nov. 12th for $20 each. We think you'll love this year's design! 

Shirts will not be sold on race day this year due to COVID-19 protocols, so be sure to order yours online! Race packets can be picked up in the Barre Town school parking lot.
