Our race is all about family, giving back, and having fun. There is no official race fee. You can give as much or as little as you want. Our goal is to feed as many families in Central Ohio as we can – and you can help. You can help by running our race, spreading the word, and by making a donation. You decide on the donation, and feel good knowing that 100% of what you give will go directly to those in need.
The Organizing Committee of the New Albany Charity Run is excited to announce the New Albany Thanksforgiving 4 Miler and kids run! The fun will begin at Market Square in New Albany on Thanksgiving Day, November 28, 2019.
We are very excited to build on the success of the past three years and to benefit the great local organizations in 2019; The Mid-Ohio Food Bank, Life Care Alliance and The New Albany Thanksgiving Day fund at the New Albany Community Foundation.
All are welcome, including competitive runners, joggers, walkers and strollers wanting to enjoy time with friends and loved ones before celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday. We hope this event provides the opportunity to gather with the community to raise funds and awareness for our beneficiaries.
All donated canned goods during race week go directly to the New Albany Food Pantry.
Each Thanksforgiving 4 Miler registration comes with an super nice participant shirt. Extremely soft to the touch, great to wear around town or in the gym. Please note the vintage triblend tees are adult male sizes and tend to shrink a half size in the wash, also artwork may vary slightly from the samples below.
Shirts are earned by contributions of $20 or more!
Save time in line on race day, and stop by the New Albany Food Pantry (79 North High Street New Albany, OH 43054) on Tuesday, November 26 (10a-8p) or Wednesday, November 27 (10a-6p) and get your race number and t-shirt in advance. Race day pickup will also be available near the start line beginning at 630a, though we do highly recommend taking advantage of early packet pickup hours to ensure a smooth race-day experience.
