The Green Lake Gobble & Mashed Potato Munch Off is returning to Green Lake Park on Sunday, Nov. 20, 2011.
More than 1,800 people are expected to attend.
The event begins at 9:10 a.m. with a free Kids Dash, followed by a 5K run/walk at 9:30 a.m. The race course can be viewed here.
Runners will have the opportunity to “Burn the Turkeys” by racing against one male and one female running the event in turkey costumes. All the runners who finish the 5K before the turkey of their gender will automatically qualify to win a range of random prizes. There will also be a costume contest.
Eight contestants will compete in the Mashed Potato Munch Off. The competitive eating contest is four minutes long. The prize is “instant glory, some hard earned cash, a crown and a life-time entry into the 5K run/walk portion of the event.”

Partial proceeds from the event, as well as canned food collected onsite, will be donated to Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission.
