A total of 550 runners and walkers participated in the eighth annual Gobble Wobble on a cold Thanksgiving morning, the largest turnout in the event’s history. The event, organized by the Lexington-Rockbridge Jaycees, benefits the Rockbridge Area YMCA, the local chamber of commerce and the Rockbridge Area Health Center. Among the scenes were (clockwise, from above) Paige Brown (no. 583) leading a group of runners down Main Street, followed by Tyler Ludtke, a determined 11-year old-and his mom Jen Ludtke (to his immediate right); walkers, including a baby in a stroller, heading down Waddell Street; runners taking off at the start of the race; participants in the 1-mile fun run leaving the starting line; and the Gobble Wobble’s 5K winner and top male runner, Mac Howison, 46, of Pittsburgh, and top female runner, Laurel Sheffield, 23, of Buena Vista, gathering in celebration with the mascot. Howison’s winning time was 17:45.79 and Sheffield’s time was 20:36.1. (Claudia Schwab photos)
