Thursday November 23, 2023

Coyote Point Park, San Mateo

A Runner’s Mind, the Bay Area’s local run specialty store, is proud to present the 9th annual Gobble Wobble. Join us at Coyote Point Park in San Mateo on Thanksgiving morning for a 5K or 10K celebrating friends, family, and community as we ARM up and give thanks!

Race Start/Race Course

We’re excited to welcome back the 10K race option for 2023. There are updated paths and Bay Trail access with all of the recently completed construction at Coyote Point, along the Bay Trail, and at Seal Point. We are still working to finalize the course for both the 5K and 10K and will update this section with more details. You can count on the race being flat and fast!
