Galloping Gobbler 4 Mile/15K
Nov 28 2013
Fort Wayne IN
2013 features both the 4 Miler and the second year of a longer distance 15K run. Both finish on the campus of the University of Saint Francis.
Music, a live turkey, a costume turkey mascot, chip timing, and over 4000 runners make this a time to share with family and friends.
The Galloping Gobbler has become Fort Wayne’s new family tradition for Thanksgiving. Make room for the turkey and trimmings by running the four mile Galloping Gobbler course or the newer longer course alternative.
The four miler starts at the Hutzell Athletic Center on the campus of the University of Saint Francis and then takes you through Fort Wayne’s historic Lindenwood Cemetery before finishing back at campus. Four miler starts at 8:30 AM.
The 15K starts near W. Jefferson and I-69. Runners take the Towpath Trail to Rockhill Park, cross Jefferson, merge with the 4 mile runners into Lindenwood Cemetery and then cross the finish line at the campus. Shuttle bus service will be available from campus to start. Start time for the longer distance run will be at 8:00 AM to allow smooth merger with 4 milers.
