34rd Annual Gate River Run 5 and 15K
March 12, 2011
These runs promise to be the biggest and best ever. Last year over 18,000 runners and walkers participated in one of the three featured events. The 15K is the main event with over 14,000 runners and walkers. The Gate River Run is the largest 15K in the United States and will once again served as the USA 15K Championship. The other featured events are the Florida Times-Union 5K for Charity and the Aidas Junior River Run. Both of these events had over 2,000 participants last year.
The Gate River Run has all the ingredients of a great running event. The course starts at the Jacksonville Municipal Stadium, runs through the heart of downtown Jacksonville where the race crosses the St. Johns River over the Main Street Bridge, then runs through historic San Marco, down Atlantic Blvd to the beautiful and scenic St. Nicolas area, and then crosses the river for the second time over the green monster, the Hart Bridge, to finish on Duval Street back at the stadium.
Live bands perform at ten different locations on the course to keep you pumped up through-out the race, water stations are located at every mile, medical stations can be found at several points along the course, and thousands of spectators come out for yard parties all along the route. The Gate River Run is more than a race. It is a major happening in Jacksonville. We hope you join us for all the fun and excitement!
It's time to get off the couch, lace up those shoes, and start whipping yourself into shape for the big race. We can help!
