The Valvoline Instant Oil Change Goblin Gallop is a USATF certified 5K race, a 5K Walk and a 1K Fun Run.

The Goblin Gallop is a competitive 5K chip race over a USATF certified course. Prizes for first, second, and third place, male and female, are awarded in all group categories from 14 and under to 80 and older. Prizes to the top 3 male and female finishers in the Overall and Masters categories will also be awarded.

The Goblin Gallop is also a 1K Fun Run, which annually draws more than 450 youngsters, from teenagers to toddlers. Many run in costume, some accompanied by their parents. Every 1K participant receives a runner's medallion!

Team Competition Returns This Year for the 5K Run

Participants can choose to be on a co-ed team consisting of at least 4 members. There are 3 categories available (organization, family & friends) with fun awards to the top team overall in each category. The awards are for best team costume, fastest team (adding up the top 4 co-ed times) & for the team with the most members registered prior to Packet Pickup.
