Knowing that a ton of food was about to be consumed yesterday, Stratton Mountain saw an opportunity to encourage a little pre-turkey exercise and help the less fortunate at the same time! Over 250 runners, walkers and turkeys assembled to particpate in the 7th Annual Gobble Gobble Wobble 5K Run on Thanksgiving morning.
Attendees came from all over the east coast, with some hailing from as far as New Jersey!
The winner of the run was Ward Kane, a resident of nearby Bondville, Vermont. He crossed the finish line with a time of 17:07.
All proceeds collected from the Gobble Gobble Wobble 5K are going to be donated to individuals affected by the recent Hurricane Sandy. In total, the event raised approximately $5,000 to benefit the storm’s victims.
With their opening day on Wednesday, Stratton Mountain has had a busy week!
The fun has just begun!
