Participants must maintain at least a 14 minute per mile pace to make the course deadline. Participants in the marathon that do not maintain the 14 minute pace per mile will be asked to turn onto the ½ marathon course at the course split.

History: The Gobbler Grind was started 20 years ago by a couple of employees from Garry Gribbles Running Sports who thought it would be fun to plan a race between two stores.  At the time, paved running trails almost connected the Ward Parkway store and the Overland Park store at Stoll Park.  The trails were measured and it was easy to make it into a marathon.  The name Gobbler Grind was chosen to differentiate from all the other “turkey” races in the fall.  The first race 20 years ago was won by Eric Peters.  As time went on the location was moved, but the race remains a tradition for runners in the Kansas City area.
