The invention of weapons means that humans no longer have to chase down their food, making it far easier to nab one of those speedy cheeseburgers. Wager your running skills against the grub at the finish line with today's Groupon: for $20, you get an adult registration for the second annual Santa Monica Gobble Wobble 5K, a USATF-certified race that's scheduled for Saturday, November 27, at 8 a.m. (regularly $35; $40 on race day). With their complimentary T-shirts in place, racers flit away from the starting line at Emerson Reed Park and begin a 5-kilometer loop that leads them through downtown Santa Monica and next to the ocean with herds of irate gobblers in constant pursuit. Survivors can enjoy a post-race celebration with refreshments and awards for the best turkey costumes. Participants are encouraged to bring a can of chow for the Westside Food Bank, a non-profit organization that collects food for social service agencies.
