Marietta roads to close for Gobble Jog on Nov. 28

On Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 28, Marietta will close roads on the Gobble Jog race route at 7:30 a.m. with roads around the Marietta Square closing at midnight the night before.

Gobble Jog is the largest annual fundraiser for MUST Ministries that was founded nearly 50 years to help those in need.

All proceeds will go to MUST Ministries, offering an emergency shelter in Marietta, transitional housing, meals, groceries, clothing, job readiness and job placement with assistance from more than 10,000 volunteers.

The roads that go around the Marietta Square (North Park, West Park, East Park and South Park) will be closed all morning on Nov. 28 along with the section of Powder Springs Street and Whitlock Avenue near the Square.

The roads on the race route will close at 7:30 a.m. with the route crossing North Marietta Parkway (120 Loop) at Cherokee and Church Streets.

Park for free at any of the city parking garages or parking lots near the Square.
