Full Belly Friends of Shelby 5K and Fun Run

The Full Belly is a 5K and kid’s Fun Run benefits Shelby Park & Bottoms and raising money for neighbors in need over the Thanksgiving weekend. With every race registration Friends of Shelby is collecting money/items for the Martha O’Bryan food bank.

The second annual Full Belly Friends of Shelby 5K race will take place Thanksgiving weekend – Saturday, November 27. The Full Belly includes a 5K, 1-mile kid’s fun run, as well as a virtual option for people who are traveling or would like to run on their own. In addition to raising money for Shelby Park and Bottoms, registrants can donate money and food for neighbors in need during Thanksgiving. 

This year with every race registration Friends of Shelby, is collecting money and items for the Martha O’Bryan food bank. The Martha O’Bryan Center is an anti-poverty non-profit organization with longstanding history and deep community roots, founded in 1894.  Donations made in addition to race registration will be donated directly to Martha O’Bryan for use in their food bank and other household needs. Thanks to our Title Sponsor Eddie Ferrell, we will donate an additional 10 lbs of produce and $50 to the food bank for every team of 10 or more people.

The in-person race will take place at the Shelby Park Events Field, beginning on the road on the south side of Lake Sevier near the Reflection sculpture (the big silver bird). Visit the race website for a map of the race route through the park.

Virtual and out-of-town runners can run anywhere they like anytime Wednesday through Sunday, Thanksgiving weekend. Details to follow on how to submit your time.
