ONLINE REGISTRATION CLOSED - Walk Up Only

The gobble cobble course is aptly named. The course starts just outside of the MAC Harbor East, runs down Lancaster Street into Fells Point, then tours the Fells Point waterfront on the old cobble stone roads filled with trolley tracks, missing cobblestones, and sunken portions of roadway. Watch your step or you may truly be gobbling on some cobbling before dinner! After that the course runs on the Pratt Street trolley path and Inner Harbor Promenade.
A number of runners have inquired about strollers. Absolutely no strollers on this course. You can drive down the Fells Point cobblestones in a Humvee and still have the fillings fall out of your teeth, plus the displaced cobblestones and trolley tracks make it even more of a challenge.
You can use street side parking in the downtown area. METERS ARE NOT IN EFFECT on Thanksgiving morning, so feel free to park in any open legal space without fear of a ticket.
The 7K course starts in Harbor East, heads over to Fells Point, returns, then heads around the promenade and back.
