It's a Thanksgiving Day Tradition! If you think the only race that happens on Thanksgiving Day is seeing who gets a second helping of pumpkin pie first , guess again. Before lifting a fork, watching football, and taking a post-turkey snooze, hundreds Andersonian's start their holiday by giving thanks - with the famous Electric City Gobbler 5K and 1 MILE FUN RUN!We welcome the tail feathers of Elite runners, weekend warriors, mamma's with strollers and kids alike along our fast 3.1 mile run course! Or, our NEW tradition, the 1 Mile FUN RUN! Proceeds go to scholarship kids in the community to be active through our Operation Active Kids Program, OAK. So, if you have a flair for costumed fun, and enjoy fun, prizes and looking for a reason to feel guilt free about gobbling down all day, then lucky for you (and your love of green bean casserole) we are here, so get signed up you turkeys!!
