Drumstick Dash

ERM’s seventh annual Drumstick Dash is our run/walk where participants can move their feet so others can eat! Benefitting our annual Thanksgiving food basket giveaway, the Gobbler Gathering, the Drumstick Dash will take place at 8 a.m. on Saturday, November 10. ERM’s Drumstick Dash will be starting and finishing at downtown Evansville’s C.K. Newsome Community Center (100 East Walnut Street, Evansville, IN 47713).

With a new race route in Evansville, Indiana, there will be two running/walking distances registrants can choose from: an 8K (less than five miles) distance that will pass through historic Bosse Field (home to the Evansville Otters) and Garvin Park and a 5K distance.


Participants will be able to browse vendor booths, eat some delicious snacks provided by ERM’s culinary team, chase Butterball, our beloved turkey mascot, around the course, and race to win a commemorative Drumstick Dash medal (awarded to first through third place finishers in each male and female age division) and a frozen turkey awarded to first place finishers in each male and female age division.

Age Divisions for males and females are as follows and these apply to both the 5k and 8k races.
