Goshen Running Club


The 2017 race is being held at 9:00 a.m. on Thanksgiving morning, November 23, 2017.

Please arrive early! Pre-registration packet pickup is race morning between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m.

We do accept race day registrants. But again, earlier the better!

Registration is $30 for applications received by November 15 and $35 for race day registrants.

The T-shirts are awesome... but in limited supply. To guarantee that you A) get one and B) get the size you want, register early! No whining!

Fashionable and functional fleece beanie hats are also available (also in limited supply). You can reserve one on your application or through online registration. If any are still available on race morning, they will be for sale at the fairgrounds.

The course is described and a map is included in a pdf file (link on the menu at the left). It's a beautiful course over rolling hills, through the woods, through farm country... but it is challenging, so as the Boy Scouts say, "Be Prepared"! That said, you will love it, and that turkey dinner never tasted so good.

Overall winners receive the Laschever Memorial Cup. The top three finishers overall, male and female, receive awards, as do the first three finishers in each division. Awards include an assortment of ribbons, pies, running shoes and gift certificates. And, of course, the top male and female Goshen residents are awarded Nodine's turkeys!

Divisions: 10 and under, 11-14, 15-18, 19-29 (Open), 30-39 (Sub-Master), 40-49 (Master), 50-59 (Grand Master), 60-69 (Super Grand Master), 70+ (Grand Turkeys). Walkers welcome.

The race is held rain or shine!
