The 13th annual Marietta Daily Journal Gobble Jog is at Marietta Square this week, and Gas South is honored to be a sponsor of the event that benefits MUST Ministries. For many families, attending the Gobble Jog has become a Thanksgiving morning tradition before spending the day eating lots of turkey. What better way to start a day of giving thanks than spending it raising money for MUST Ministries – an organization that served 31,000 men, women and children last year.
In 2003, the Gobble Jog had 1,400 runners who raised $29,000. Now, more than 8,000 runners and walkers participate and yearly proceeds exceed $500,000.
The Gobble Jog offers a 10K, 5K, 1K and Tot Trot. To view the course map click here: http://www.mustministries.org/file/events/Pages-1-14-from-Gobble-Job_2015-2.pdf
Are you going to be out of town or too busy cooking on Thanksgiving morning? You can still register for the Gobble Jog by signing up as a Phantom Runner and you will receive the race t-shirt. You can also donate to one of your fellow runners using their online fundraising page.
