Gobblers Run 5K

Wake Forest, NC

The Jim Allen Group presents the 14th Annual Gobbler’s Run 5K on November 28, 2019.
With all proceeds benefiting the Boys & Girls Club, this family-friendly Thanksgiving Day event is a great way to bring families together and support the community. The 3.1 mile loop is an easy stroll through downtown and historic Wake Forest. Push your kids or bring your dog – strollers and pets are welcome. You’ll get a race t-shirt and be able to eat more turkey without the guilt!


The 5K race will start and finish at the Boys & Girls Club of Wake Forest at 325 S. Wingate Street in Wake Forest. The course is mostly flat, looping through the historic residential and business districts. There will be one water stop at the half-way point located on N. Main St. You can view a course map on our website.

Gobbler's Run is capped at 2,300 runners this year.  Register early so you don't miss out!


Professional chip timing using the Jaguar “disposable bib-chip” timing system, is provided by Precision Race. With Precision Race there is no need to wait for your race results.  Results will be available instantly through our touch-screen Results Kiosks, live in the ItsYourRace mobile app and online, and via text message.

FREE FINISH LINE PHOTOS!  After the race you will find finish line photos in your race resutls online and in the ItsYourRace app.  Download and share your favorite photos on social media or use your photo(s) however you want!
