8th Annual Gobbler 5k and 1 Mile Kids Fun Run

First Christian Academy is hosting the 8th annual Gobbler 5k Run on Thursday, November 26th, 2020  Join us on Thanksgiving morning for a 1 mile fun run and 5k event! Run, walk, or stroll with your family through beautiful Starkey Park in New Port Richey, Florida. While you’re getting a great workout, you can also feel good about helping local students. All event proceeds from the Gobbler Run go to support First Christian Academy. We are still planning to run in person. Pasco Parks has approved our run! COVID will make it look a little different as it will be a free style run with no shotgun start. 

The Gobbler 5K will be a chip-timed race. Participants will receive a beautiful finisher’s medal, poly dry-fit race t-shirt and backpack. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each age group will also receive a placement trophy! The 1 Mile Fun Run is a race for all ages. Participants get a finishers medal, poly dry-fit race t-shirt and backpack! The entire event is family  and pet friendly with music, vendors and fun! 

Online registration ends Monday 11/23/20 at Midnight. Runners may still register in person on Race Day or packet pick up. Racers that want guaranteed shirt sizes must sign up online by 11/13.

PACKET PICK UP will be on Wednesday 11/25/20 from 4 to 6 PM at Starkey Park in the Educational Center.  Please take advantage of early pick up so on Thanksgiving morning all you have to do is show up and run!  

All participants will be parking in the fields at the entrance of the park. The race is in the center of the park (same awesome spot as last year) with the start and finish located at the Educational Center/ Information Kiosk. Please plan to make the short walk from the fields in the front (main parking area last year) to the Educational Center.

Jogging strollers are welcome as are well behaved and leashed pets.

Gates to the park open at 6:45am Thanksgiving morning. PLEASE do not go to the gate sooner then 6:45am if you are a participant. Our vendors and volunteers need to get in and get set up. This is going to be the best race you have ever participated in! Be excited!
