Tampa YMCA Invites Community to 2nd Annual Goody Goody™ Turkey Gobble

On Thanksgiving morning, the Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA invites community members to participate in a fun 5K or one mile walk/run in downtown Tampa. All ability levels are welcome to participate in the Tampa Y’s Goody Goody™ Turkey Gobble 5K sponsored by Goody Goody restaurant, which will open in Tampa’s Hyde Park Village later this month.

“Goody Goody is the title sponsor because I believe in the Y and in fitness,” says Richard Gonzmart, fourth generation co-owner and president of the Columbia Restaurant Group, which owns and operates Goody Goody restaurant. “And the course is close to our location in Hyde Park Village.”

Goody Goody is also graciously providing free breakfast to all participants after the chip-timed race begins and ends at Amalie Arena. The route is an out and back course, taking participants across the Platt Street Bridge and along the beautiful and scenic Bayshore Boulevard. Prizes will be awarded to 1st place overall male/female adult and 1st place overall male/female youth (ages 9 and under). First place prizes will also be awarded by age group (10-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+). Strollers and dogs are welcome to join the race, music and family fun.

The Y is very proud to say 100 percent of proceeds raised from the Goody Goody Turkey Gobble 5K will support the LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA program for cancer survivors and their families. The free 12-week program offers people affected by cancer a safe, supportive environment to participate in physical and social activities focused on strengthening the whole person.

Registration is available at (prices increase August 31st):

  • $30 per person for individual 5k
  • $15 per person for run/walk 1 mile
