The Galloping Gobbler has become Fort Waynes new family tradition for Thanksgiving. Folks visiting from across the country have made room for the turkey and trimmings by running the four mile Galloping Gobbler course. The four miler would start at the Hutzell Athletic Center on the campus of the University of Saint Francis and then take you through Fort Waynes historic Lindenwood Cemetery before finishing back at campus.
The RACE IS LIVE. Lets truly give thanks for being shepherded through this past year. It is time to celebrate together.
Runners have enjoyed music, posing with a live turkey, a costume turkey mascot, chip timing, and the camaraderie of over 2100 runners, friends and family over the years. We have been looking forward to having a TRUE THANKSGIVING in 2021 when we can all be together again.
Know that we have worked hard to have a safe, in-person event.
Join us, your family and friends for the 2021 event when we will have a really special day of Thanksgiving. Blessings for you and your family.
