The Gobble Jog, the seventh largest Thanksgiving Day race in America and sponsored by The Marietta Daily Journal, is expected to have more than 11,000 runners and walkers to arrive on the Marietta Square for the race.

This year, the Gobble Jog is one of a series of races being monitored by the Guinness Book of World Records that will determine the largest number of participants in a multi-venue event.

Thanksgiving races all over the country have banded together to take the world record currently in Malaysia.

The event, which benefits MUST Ministries, has become a street party atmosphere with costumes, “Gobble Dogs,” family teams, corporate teams, church groups, firefighters running in full gear and feature lively music.

Participants can also establish a personal fundraising page and help raise more money for MUST, which helps feed, house, clothe and train 34,000 needy people a year.
