This is the 8th Annual Thanksgiving Wattle 5k Run/Walk in Grove City. The 5k run/walk was established to allow families and friends to come together on this special day to celebrate and give thanks for life and all that comes with it.
5k run and walk finishers will receive a long sleeve t-shirt, chip timing, medal, pumpkin pie, and finish line refreshments. There also will be a kids run and a 100-yard event for athletes who are developmentally or physically challenged. Additionally, there will be a 13 mile Rotisserie Roll Bike Ride for bicycling enthusiasts. The 5k route is a police protected course featuring live music on the majestic Buckeye Parkway. We have selected the Grove City Food Pantry as our local charity to support. Last year this event raised over $25,000 for the Grove City Food Pantry on Columbus Street. This is approximately 25% of their annual operations budget.
