Sponsor, Elite Events, back to help manage Gobble Gobble!

Elite Events

We are so grateful to, once again, have sponsors Elite Events’ expertise, equipment and personnel involved in this year’s Thanksgiving Day Gobble Gobble Four Miler™.


The events this group puts on are nothing short of top-notch. The running events they manage are all USATF Certified. What does this mean and why does it matter? What if you ran a timed event and your chip time said.. “about 23 mins and 5 seconds?” If your course isn’t certified, this estimation is essentially what is happening.
USACERT
Sure, the race may have been advertised as a 5K and you assumed that the distance is the same from race to race. Not so unless the event is USATF certified! If you aren’t sure you are running the same distance from event to event, how can you accurately compare your time? You can’t.

The Gobble Gobble Four Miler ™ has been certified since 2001 and the chip timing will be back this year as an option to runners who want to race for a time. If it isn’t certified, it is only approximate.
