The race registration site is open for this year and will remain open until midnight on Saturday November 19th! We’re looking forward to seeing another big crowd in Buhl Park on Thanksgiving morning. You can see a preview of this year’s shirt on the header of the site, directly above and a larger preview at the Shirts tab.
This year the Shenango Conservancy, the sponsoring organization for the Gobble Wobble, embarked on a $200,000 project for repairs to the Kidd’s Mill Bridge in Transfer, PA. The Conservancy’s share of this project is over $60,000. In order to complete this project, we are going to need all the help we can get. This year’s Gobble Wobble is part of the solution, but it won’t be enough by itself. Every additional donation made to the Conservancy will help us accomplish this repair project, and allow us to still be around for the 30th Annual Gobble Wobble in 2017. The Shenango Conservancy is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization.
If you would like to make a donation, and you want a receipt, please mail your donation to

Thank you in advance,

We had intended to have the registration site up by October 1, but have been delayed slightly by a death in the family. Check back later this week – hopefully the registration will be available before our family wedding next weekend!
The beautiful weather on Thanksgiving morning was a big factor in the fantastic turnout for the 28th Annual Gobble Wobble. Total registration was 1445 participants. All three of the loyal turkeys once again finished the race: Kathy Shoaf, Pete Olshavsky and Tony Sunseri have completed all 28 Gobble Wobble races – impressive.
The Shenango Conservancy thanks all race participants and volunteers that help to make the race such a huge success every year.
Congratulations to Barrett Kemp and Gianna Guerino, the first Tom and first Hen across the finish line. The full race results will be posted soon at Smiley Miles website – link below.
Happy Thanksgiving! We’ll see you next year!

The shirt artwork has been finalized! The shirt will be a light sky blue, it’s not really clear on this representation. The conservancy is proud to offer another amazing shirt designed by Dennis Lackey. Dennis has designed many popular Gobble Wobble shirts over the years – this is sure to be another crowd pleaser.

Last year 1,144 runners and walkers officially complete the annual Thanksgiving Day 5K event in Buhl Park. The dusting of snow did not discourage the dedicated runners and walkers of the Shenango Valley. Hundreds of spectators lined the park supporting race participants. As usual, there were quite a few runners and walkers who donned festive Thanksgiving attire. Many turkey hats were spotted at the race. There were even several turkeys, Pilgrims and Indians at the park with their running shoes on. Enjoy the photos posted from last year’s race, available on the photo menu at the top of the blog.
Looking forward to seeing another enthusiastic crowd in Buhl Park on Thanksgiving morning.
