About This Activity

On Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 26, 2015 beginning and ending at Amalie Arena in downtown Tampa, The Goody Goody Turkey Gobble will be the premier 5K Thanksgiving Day event in our community!  

Starting from humble beginnings 10+ years ago, when a group of joggers met at the Downtown YMCA to run before starting their Thanksgiving Day festivities, this once small gathering has turned into a cherished Tampa tradition. In 2015, the Goody Goody Turkey Gobble transcends generations of participants as they gather to celebrate the holiday with families, friends and co-workers while furthering the cause of the Tampa YMCA to strengthen the foundations of community through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

Participants will enjoy music and festivities including door prizes. Awards will be given to Overall 1st place Male and Female adult and Overall 1st place Male and Female youth finishers ages 12 and under. The next 50 men and 50 women finishers, regardless of age,  will receive a commemorative gift.

100% of the proceeds raised from the 5K will support the Tampa YMCA’s LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA cancer wellness programs. The free 12-week program offers people affected by cancer a safe, supportive environment to participate in physical and social activities focused on strengthening the whole person.
