[11/19/18]   Hey Gobblers! Thank you to everyone who came out to Green Lake yesterday to enjoy the beautiful Seattle weather. It has come to our attention that there were some participants who did not receive a medal. We truly apologize for this and we are fully committed to fulfilling our end. You deserve your medal! We have another shipment on the way and because they are shipping overseas, we expect them in approx 2 weeks. If you are one of those who did not receive, please feel free to email me directly and I will handle and answer any questions you may have. [email protected] Please do not comment on this post as email correspondence is appreciated.


This event has completely SOLD OUT of pre-printed t-shirts, sorry! You can still register for the event and have a few options:

If you’re okay with getting a $10 entry discount and not receiving a shirt, you can either register online between now and 5pm Saturday evening and pick your packet up on Sunday morning (without a shirt). You can also go to Super Jock ‘n Jill at Green Lake Friday or Saturday and register for the same $10 discount and pick up your bib and timing chip and take advantage of Super Jock ‘n Jill’s 42nd Anniversary Sale. You may also wait until Sunday morning and just register at the event beginning at 8 a.m.. Keep in mind that on Sunday the price will increase by $10.

If you would like to receive a Gobble t-shirt and are okay with waiting a week to pick it up at Super Jock ‘n Jill, you can still register online at the discounted rate and come to the registration tent Sunday morning to pick up your packet, pay an additional $10 there and you will be added to the list of participants getting a shirt later. You may also register in person at Super Jock ‘n Jill Friday and Saturday during packet pickup and pay the additional $10 to receive a shirt later. And of course you can wait until Sunday morning and do the same thing at the event, keeping in mind that the price will be $10 more on Sunday.

Thank you for your understanding and see you on Sunday!
