Gobble Gait is an 8k and 3k run/walk held on Thanksgiving morning that has helped raised over $1.5 million to support Hastings Family Service  programs and services.

“This event has allowed HFS to respond to the changing needs of the community over time,” Chris Koop, HFS Executive Director, said. “And it is such a fun way to start a holiday that is all about being thankful.”

This years’ presenting sponsors are Vermillion Bank and Smead, but sponsorships are still available and can be submitted online

This outdoor, family-friendly run begins at 8:30 a.m. on Nov. 25 and has a festive atmosphere with music and downtown Hastings’ businesses open and ready to serve.

Prices will increase to standard registration on Nov 8. at $35 for the 8k and late registration on Nov. 23 is $40 for the 8k.
