The Galloping Gobbler has become Fort Wayne’s new family tradition for Thanksgiving. Make room for the turkey and trimmings by running the Galloping Gobbler. Race start is 8:30 am at the Hutzell Athletic Center on the campus of the University of Saint Francis. Runners head south on Leesburg Road before following the gently rolling, wooded hills through Fort Wayne’s historic Lindenwood Cemetery. Runners and walkers finish back at campus on the corner of Leesburg and Lansing. Music, a live turkey, a costume turkey mascot, chip timing, and over 4000 runners make this a time to share with family and friends.
