Wake Forest Boys & Girls Club

Registration is $15 before Nov. 15 (children 5 and under are free) and all proceeds benefit the Wake Forest Boys & Girls Club. Last year’s race attracted over 1,000 participants and we expect even more this year. The 3.1 mile loop is an easy stroll through downtown and historic Wake Forest. The course is open to runners and walkers of all skill levels. Push your kids or bring your dog – walkers and pets are encouraged to attend. You’ll get a race t-shirt and be able to eat one more helping of stuffing without the guilt. Register online at www.gobblersrun.com or for more information email Cat Redd at gobblersrun@hotmail.com.
