Since 1997. Years later, we are still raising money to benefit Hastings Family Service, but it is no longer a small race! Our 2k and 8k combined are now averaging well over 2,000 runners each year, and have consistently been one of the Twin Cities' largest Thanksgiving Day runs! Many families have made it their traditional way to kick off the holiday season! Our race registration fees, paired with the hard work of race volunteers and the generosity of over 150 sponsors from around the community, have enabled Gobble Gait to raise over half a million dollars for Hastings Family Service! Not to mention the tons of food that our race day food drive has brought in! Wow! These funds are used by Hastings Family Service to provide assistance to families in need of basic necessities like food, transportation and clothing. ? On a day we celebrate our blessings.... it's such a great, fun way to give back! We hope you make Gobble Gait a part of your Thanksgiving tradition!
