The Wobble & Gobble Autism Awareness 5k is an annual, inclusive, community run/walk hosted by The Junior Wednesday Club. Because of this year's COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Wobble & Gobble race will be virtual. Participants can complete the race during the time frame starting Wednesday, November 11, 2020 until Saturday, November 14, 2020. 


Because this year's race is being held virtually, participants can run or walk anywhere at anytime during the given timeframe.  We hope that this will make it more convenient for participants. We also hope this will encourage individuals to get outside and get active all while supporting a worthy cause!

Frequently Asked Questions

When is packet pick up?

Packet pickup will be Tuesday, November 10, 2020 in the parking lot of the Danville Science Center from 4:30pm-6:30pm. 


Are there awards?

Unfortunately, there will not be awards for this year's race. 


Can I reserve a shirt in a certain size? 

If you register early, yes, we will have your t-shirt in the size you selected. If you waited to register closer to race day, we cannot guarantee the size you'll need will be available. We make every effort to order enough shirts, and enough shirts in each quantity. 


Can I get a refund if I register but then I don’t run or walk?

No. We plan the race based on the number of registered participants, so once you have registered we cannot offer you a refund. If, however, you register and do not run or walk, you may still pick up your race packet and shirt and join us in the fun.


Can I run or walk with headphones or ear buds?

Yes, you can. We do not restrict the use of headphones or ear buds.


Who hosts this event?

From 2012-2017, the Dan River Autism Awareness Autism 5k was led by its founding Race Director with a planning committee of parents, educators, autism professionals from the Center for Pediatric Therapies and volunteers from the Danville Running Club. In 2018, the Junior Wednesday Club adopted the event as its annual fall project. Moving the event from April to November led to the renaming of the event to the Wobble & Gobble Autism Awareness 5k.
