WORLAND – The Gobble Wobble was moved to Saturday, Nov. 22 so families traveling out of town for the holidays would have a chance to participate in the race. But, the crowd wasn’t what Tanya Kienlen and the Worland Warriors cross country team expected.
After multiple calls to Kienlen Saturday morning, it was proven to be because a slight bit of confusion.
Some still thought the race was being held on Thanksgiving Day per usual.
So, Kienlen and the team have decided to host the Gobble Wobble for a second time and in its regular setting – the morning of Thanksgiving.
Registration for the races will be held at 9:30 a.m. at the bike path on the corner of 15th Street and Washakie Avenue. Options for races include a two-mile walk, two-mile run and four-mile run. All three races will begin at 10 a.m.
Finishers will be welcomed with various door prizes as well as pies as the cross the finish line.
There were about 30 present at the race Saturday and Kienlen hopes to see even more participants Thanksgiving Day.
All proceeds will once again go to Carlos Pacheco and his family to help them with any expenses present after Pacheco’s heart operation he had at the end of October.
Once again, Kienlen said she wants the Gobble Wobble to be a family event and encourages everyone to come out.
“Maybe people won’t feel so guilty eating if they exercise that morning,” said Kienlen.
The race will cost $15 for individuals and families can sign up together for $20.
