Great experience

I've only been as a supporter, but its exactly what you'd expect of something like this. Its always great to support a cause and the Gate River Run is a big running event.

This was the first year that I have run the Gate River Run, but I have heard about it for years. It is extremely well organized - signing up, packet pickup, and the race day was smooth sailing. The course itself was very well laid out, and there were bystanders cheering you on the entire way. There is a lot... More

I have done this run twice in my life, both times with my brtother. We have run in 10k and longer races throughout the eastern coast of the US together but this race makes even a casual roadracer like us feel like an Olympian here for the prize monet. Expos, carb loading pre race dinners, and a fanatic city that... More

As a Jacksonville resident, the River Run is one thing I don't want to miss. I was not a runner when I ran my first River Run but after completing my first, it changed my opinion of large sactioned runs. There is so much energy and it is good to see 15,000-20,000 people doing something healthy. This race is for... More

There are way too many people for this event and not enough resources. The crowds are great and the run is very scenic but I will not be participating in it again.

The gate river run would be a beautiful and exciting run if it weren't for the hoards of people and un-organization! It is indeed the largest 15k in the USA. It took me 15 minutes to just cross the start line (and yes, that 15 minutes counted AGAINST my final time, even though they have chips that record when I... More

I've run the Gate River Run Since 1998. It's the biggest 15KM race in the country. The race is on second Saturday on March. Contact JTCRUNNING.COM if you need more information.
