Should I register for the run or walk? That’s up to you. The Groundhog Gallop is part of the Orthopaedic Rehab Run/Walk Series, which awards points to runners and walkers that participate in at least 5 of the series events in a year. If you plan to run/jog at all, please register for the run.

Note: 40th Groundhog Gallop will NOT be cancelled due to inclement weather. All reasonable attempts will be made to clear the course of snow, but there is a segment of the course that is hard to clear of built up ice. This is a winter race, please be mindful of course conditions and adjust your pace accordingly. Don’t worry, it’s always fun!
