Gobble On the Green

Turkey, cornbread dressing, pumpkin pie, football and family time … there are so many reasons to love Thanksgiving! Did we mention pie? Each family has its own activities and traditions to look forward to. The Village Green offers a 5K Run/Walk turkey trot, Gobble On the Green.

Like so many events affected by the pandemic in 2020, Gobble On the Green, Cashiers annual Thanksgiving 5K Run/Walk has been modified to model social responsibility and protect the health and safety of the community. What won’t change this year are the activities and traditions that make Thanksgiving so special like family, football, and the big turkey feast. So, this year’s turkey trot event will be a virtual Gobble (Not) On the Green to create some fun with friends and family members while raising funds to benefit The Village Green. Pass the pie, please!

Registration is $30 and includes a soft long sleeve 2020 commemorative event t-shirt.  To register visit runsignup.com/Race/NC/Cashiers/GobbleontheGreen5K Run or walk anytime between Saturday, November 21 and Saturday, November 28, then post your time and photo to the website and social media using the hashtag #GobbleNotOnTheGreen.
