Join us for the inaugural Gobbler Half Marathon on Saturday, November 26, 2016 at 9am at the Kentucky Horse Park/Alltech Arena. Burn off that Thanksgiving feast with a scenic Half Marathon, 10K or 5K through the one and only Kentucky Horse Park and Walnut Hall Farm.
The Academy is excited to partner with Glean and the Gobbler to make this year's run a success. We are asking for volunteers to help with several aspects of the run.
Please use the link below to register as a volunteer.
Our race charitable beneficiary will be Glean KY. Founded in 2010, GleanKY gathers and and redistributes excess fruits and vegetables nourish Kentucky's hungry. Currently operating in Fayette, Scott, Madison, and Franklin Counties, GleanKY gathers produce from farms, orchards, groceries, gardens, and farmers markets, distributing it to over seventy feeding agencies each year. 97% of agencies receiving produce from GleanKY report being able to serve a greater number of clients thanks to gleaned produce; 35% report that GleanKY allows them to serve produce for the first time. GleanKY anticipates gleaning its millionth pound of produce in the late summer of 2016.
