Description

_ The 2021 The Gobbler Half Marathon, 10K & 5K:
 

THANKSGIVING WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN!

Join us for the 6th Annual Gobbler Half Marathon, 10K & 5K on Sunday, November 21, 2021 at 8:30am at Mereworth Farm in West Lexington.  Earn your Thanksgiving feast the following Thursday with a scenic Half Marathon, 10K, or 5K through beautiful bluegrass horse country.

In addition to our in-person race, we are also providing a VIRTUAL OPTION for those who can't join us in person (or who are not ready for an in-person race).  Those who register as a virtual participant can run/walk/hike their race on their own schedule and on their own course.  Virtual participants will earn a commemorative shirt and finisher's medal.  We will mail out virtual packets to those who live outside of the Central Kentucky area.  The registration fee for the virtual race (any distance) is $40.

Our race charitable beneficiaries will be New Vocations Racehorse Adoption.  Read more about this worthy local charity below.

Our scenic half marathon course will traverse through beautiful horse country and past a number of our horse farms.  All registrants receive a long-sleeved performance T-shirt (while they last). Overall, Age Group awards, DJ, free post-race massage, race photos, chip timing, post-race eats and lots of Gobbler fun!

Commemorative long-sleeved shirts (men's/women's sized) are on a first come, first served basis.  When you register if your size is not available, you can either select another size or "no shirt option" to SAVE $5.00.  We will have a SHIRT SWAP immediately following the race for anyone who either did not receive a shirt or got a size that they would like to trade with another participant.  If we have race no shows, their shirts will be available for swap following the race.

There will be a 15 minute/mile (3:15 total time) pace limit imposed for the half marathon race per contract with the City of Lexington.  Walkers and strollers are welcomed in the 10K and 5K races.  No dogs are allowed.  Awards will be mailed to our Top 3 M/F award winners.

PACKET PICKUP   We'll announce our packet pickup day/date and location(s) once these are finalized.
