Things to do: Go to Gobble Gait

Runners and walkers taking part in a recent Gobble Gait event in downtown Hastings are pictured here.

Begun as a small run/walk in 1998 to benefit Hastings Family Service, Gobble Gait the word "small" could no longer be used to describe Gobble Gait. Last year more than 2,200 participated in the 2K walk and 8K run.

Through the years, about $500,000 and tons of food have been raised, all of which have stayed here to help those in need in the community.

The race begins at Second and Sibley streets in downtown Hastings at 8:30 a.m. Thanksgiving morning.

There is also a pre-race pasta party planned the night before the race, too.

The registration fee is $30 for the 8K run and $10 for the 2K walk. The family fee is $25. Online registration is available now at www.gobblegait.com. More information is available at 651-437-1070.
