Lil Gobbler Trot Kid's Race
5 Canned Foods
-- Registration will be available online, to be clear - this kid's race is *FREE*. The canned food registration "fee" is a suggestion.
Please see map below. Kids races begin at 10:30am. We divide the kids up by age and will send them down a short trail near the blue shed. This is fun and laid back. Parents are more than welcome to stand along the course.

Meet your Race Directors:
It all began with sisters doing what they love for a community they love. In 2021, Amy stepped down as co-race director and Vanessa is carrying on the Thanksgiving Day tradition and has brought on new co-race director, Coleen Duda!
Many of you may recognize Coleen, as she volunteers at many GOATz events, and even bakes the best "Goat balls". Coleen puts her heart into everything she does. I am truly grateful to have her on board. She will be the master mind of our new courses! WOOT WOOT!
Thank you to Amy for all your years of blood, sweat, and tears that resulted in huge impacts in our community! You will be missed.
Have questions, comments, concerns, suggestions for me? Let me know at email@example.com
