Our race charitable beneficiary will be Glean KY. Founded in 2010, GleanKY gathers and and redistributes excess fruits and vegetables nourish Kentucky's hungry. Currently operating in Fayette, Scott, Madison, and Franklin Counties, GleanKY gathers produce from farms, orchards, groceries, gardens, and farmers markets, distributing it to over seventy feeding agencies each year. 97% of agencies receiving produce from GleanKY report being able to serve a greater number of clients thanks to gleaned produce; 35% report that GleanKY allows them to serve produce for the first time. GleanKY anticipates gleaning its millionth pound of produce in the late summer of 2016. A portion of your registration fee and 100% of additional donations made by Gobbler registrants will go to Glean KY.
Our scenic half marathon course will traverse through the Kentucky Horse Park grounds and Walnut Hall Farm. All registrants receive a performance T-shirt. Half Marathon finishers will receive a finishers medal. Overall & Age Group awards (13.1), DJ, race photos, custom bibs, overall, USATF certified course, chip timing, AG and masters/grand masters awards, post race eats and lots of "Turkey Weekend Fun"!
Sign up by November 14th to guarantee yourself a commemorative race T-shirt.
There will be a 15 minute/mile (3:15 total time) pace limit imposed for this race......so if you plan to walk or walk/run keep that in mind. We'll have a point on the course that you need to reach by a certain time to continue onward. Walkers are welcomed for the 5K & 10K races.
