About This Activity


Join us for the 7th Annual Gobbler Half Marathon, 10K & 5K on Sunday, November 20, 2022 at 8:30am at Mereworth Farm in West Lexington.  Earn your Thanksgiving feast the following Thursday with a scenic Half Marathon, 10K, or 5K through beautiful bluegrass horse country.

In addition to our in-person race, we are also providing a VIRTUAL OPTION for those who can't join us in person (or who are not ready for an in-person race).  Those who register as a virtual participant can run/walk/hike their race on their own schedule and on their own course.  Virtual participants will earn a commemorative shirt and finisher's medal.  We will mail out virtual packets to those who live outside of the Central Kentucky area.  The registration fee for the virtual race (any distance) is $40.

Our race charitable beneficiaries will be New Vocations Racehorse Adoption.  Read more about this worthy local charity below.

Our scenic half marathon course will traverse through beautiful horse country and past a number of our horse farms.  All registrants receive a long-sleeved performance T-shirt (while they last). Overall, Age Group awards, DJ, free post-race massage, race photos, chip timing, post-race eats and lots of Gobbler fun!

Commemorative long-sleeved shirts (men's/women's sized) are on a first come, first served basis.  When you register if your size is not available, you can either select another size or "no shirt option" to SAVE $5.00.  We will have a SHIRT SWAP immediately following the race for anyone who either did not receive a shirt or got a size that they would like to trade with another participant.  If we have race no shows, their shirts will be available for swap following the race.

There will be a 15 minute/mile (3:15 total time) pace limit imposed for the half marathon race per contract with the City of Lexington.  Walkers and strollers are welcomed in the 10K and 5K races.  No dogs are allowed.  Awards will be mailed to our Top 3 M/F award winners.

PACKET PICKUP   Packet pickup is Saturday, November 19, 2022 from 11am to 3pm at Fleet Feet Lexington located at The Summit at Fritz Farm (Address:  4084 Finn Way Suite 140, Lexington, KY 40517)   Anyone who picks up on Saturday will be entered into our raffle for some great runner prizes!

There will also be limited race day PPU from 7:15-8:30am mostly designed for our out of town/out of state runners.  This will be a Mereworth Farm our race venue.





Please consider volunteering for our benefiting charities at this race (or having friends/family do so).  Our race day shift generally runs from 6:30am-12:00pm.  Once you sign up, we'll be in touch with you about more details, duties, etc...
