Gobble Cobble Virtual Turkey Trot presented by Falls Road Running

Sat November 21 - Sun November 29 Baltimore, MD 21231 US Directions


Baltimore, MD US 21231


This year's Gobble Cobble 5k Turkey Trot is a virtual run.  Just because we are not holding a physical race due to safety considerations does not mean that you cannot get out on Thanksgiving morning and burn off some calories before settling down to a great meal later in the day. 

Because this is a virtual event, it can be run anywhere.  Due to potential travel and weather issues, the virtual race will be open from Saturday November 21st until Sunday November 29th, 2020.  This will give you plenty of opportunities to run a 5K and post your virtual results, even if there is inclement weather.  The race entry is $10, with options to purchase premium race shirts or medals.  Falls Road Running will donate $2 for each entry to the Skip Viragh Center for Pancreatic Cancer @ Johns Hopkins Medicine. 

There are options for a 5K, a 5 mile, and a 10 mile virtual Turkey Trot.  The optional premium running shirt features the classic Gobble Cobble Turkey logo!  There is also a medal option.  You print out your custom digital bib number by visiting your profile page at runsignup.com.  At the far right lower corner is a link to "View Digital Bib".  It will have your name and assigned bib number.  Print it out in the safety of your own home and wear during the virtual run. 

 *** Race registration closes on November 29th. The shirt and medal order will then be placed through our vendor and will be shipped 2 weeks after. You may choose the option to have it shipped directly to you or to the store for pick up.***

Even though the race is virtual, we will be posting a course map of the current Gobble Cobble Turkey Trot course.  In the beginning the run went through Fells Point, but eventually the fixed costs imposed by Baltimore City for using the streets of Fells Point became untenable.  So, if you want to find out for yourself why the race was named "Gobble Cobble" in the first place, just try to add this portion of run on the first year course to your Gobble Cobble Run!
