If you would like us to gather packets for a team or any assortment of registrants, please click here and include the name of EACH registrant, and we will have them ready for you at Packet Pick Up.


Please note: we do not automatically prepare team packets together because folks sometimes pick up separately, so EVEN IF you registered as a team, please let us know if you would like your packets put together.


Please contact Amelia at, or (816) 753-6719 with any questions.


Early Bird Registration ends Sunday, November 12, at 11:59 p.m. CST, and then prices go up. So register now!


Can I give to the Pilgrim Center to help support this event? 

Yes! Please do. We need your support to offer all of the community programming we do at the Pilgrim Center, including the GobbleTrot. Click here to give now.

I registered but can’t participate. Can I transfer my registration to next year or give it to a friend?

No. We’re sorry, registrations must be used this year by the person who registered.

I have friends who would like to help. How can they volunteer?
That’s great! Ask them to email us at We'll put them to work!

What charitable organization will my participation benefit?
ALL PROCEEDS (not canned food collected, not a percentage of profits, but ALL PROCEEDS) of the Gillham Road GobbleTrot benefit the community programs of the Pilgrim Center. Each year the Center presents free programming for every season.

When is Packet Pick Up

We have added a Packet Pick Up session! Now you can drive through Tuesday or Wednesday before Thanksgiving, from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at the Notre Dame de Sion Grade School, 3823 Locust Street, just behind the Pilgrim Chapel. Click here for more info. If you cannot pick up your packet, we can mail it to you for an additional $8.00 fee. Email for more information about having your packet mailed to you.

Is the 2023 Gillham Road GobbleTrot an in-person event?

Yes, this year we are glad to be celebrating together on Thanksgiving! Of course we also are offering a virtual option if that is your preference. Simply select the Virtual 5K when you register online.

How do I submit my results for my virtual 5K?

Once you have registered for the Virtual Gillham Road GobbleTrot, you will receive an email with a link that will allow you to submit your results. Don't forget to share those finish photos to Facebook or Instagram and tag us @gillhamgobbletrot and include the hashtag #gillhamgobbletrot.

Can I bring my dog to the Gillham Road GobbleTrot in-person event on Thanksgiving Day?
Sorry, no. We love our fur babies, too, but dogs can be problematic when lining up for the race.

Can I push my child in a stroller at the in-person Gillham Road Gobbletrot?
Sure! We just ask that you line up near the back of the group, with the walkers.

I would like to support the Gillham Road Gobbletrot and the Pilgrim Center. How can I sign on as a sponsor?
