Event Details

This November, wobble with Run Club of Malden before you gobble with family and friends! Join us for our annual Thanksgiving event and help raise money for Bread of Life, a local nonprofit that provides free food to economically struggling and disadvantaged families, individuals, youth, and senior citizens in Boston's metro-north region. 

Wobble Before You Gobble 2023 includes a 5K race and a kids' dash (best for ages 10 and under). Bring the family and strengthen our community by contributing to a great cause! 5K participants who register before November 1 will be guaranteed their choice size for a T-shirt, and all participants will get a PIE to celebrate their race! 

The event starts and ends next to 82 Summer Street. Free parking is available in the garage next to the building. On-street parking is also available in the surrounding area. The kids' dash will be at 9:30 a.m., followed by the 5K at 10 a.m. 

Maps of the 5K course can be found here. A map of the Kids Dash course and the registration area can be found here.

How Your Participation Helps

All donations will go to Bread of Life. Our goal is to exceed last year's donation total of $1,600. If you'd like to contribute, please visit the Donate page or enter a dollar amount during the registration process.

A collection bin will also be on site for donating food (unopened and unexpired) and other items, such as pasta sauce, cereal, canned vegetables, toothpaste, and socks. Visit Bread of Life's website for a full list of suggestions.
