Registration opens for 15th annual GobbleGait

The tradition is returning.

The 15th annual Gobble Gait, with its familiar message of raising funds and food for Hastings Family Service will be held again on Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 22, in downtown Hastings.

Begun as a small run/walk in 1998 to benefit Hastings Family Service, the event is no longer small. Last year more than 2,500 participated in the 2K walk and 8K run.

Since that first Gobble Gait more than a half million dollars and tons of food has been raised, all of which have stayed here to help those in need in the community.

A pre-race pasta party will be held from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 21, at The Onion Grille, 100 Sibley St. Cost is $10 for adults and $5 for children 10 and younger.

Race kit package pickups will be available from noon to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov.20, and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 21, at the Woodbury Running Room.

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 (until Nov. 20) at More information is available at 651-437-1070.
