TAMPA — The 4th annual Goody Goody Turkey Gobble is set for Thanksgiving morning.

On November 22, runners, walkers, and even dogs can take to the streets of downtown Tampa to burn off the calories that will surely be consumed later in the day.

There are 8k, 5k, and one-mile events to choose from, both as an individual and as a team.

ABC Action News is a sponsor of the event, and using the promo code ACTIONNEWS during signup, you will receive $5 off registration for the 8k or 5k. This code is valid until midnight on Sunday, Nov. 18.

  • Post-race Goody Goody breakfast (participants only—must wear race bib!)
