A Lowcountry Thanksgiving is incomplete without the Gobble Wobble 5K. For 40 years the Turkey Day Run has been a staple in Charleston as the city gets into full gear for the holiday season. The hallmark event raises over $10,000 ever year for over 30 charities around Charleston including MUSC Children’s Hospital, Lowcountry Food Bank, and Charleston EMS. Participants start from the Francis Marion Hotel, dashing through a landmark-filled downtown. Beyond the finish line is a Thanksgiving bash featuring jump castles, face painting, slides, and live music from Permanent Vacation.
