It’s that time of year again – when the city of Jacksonville (any many more) heads downtown to run the Gate River Run. The 15k run loops through various neighborhoods and is fun for all ages and abilities. Expect to see costumes, pros and beginners.
Krystal Klean is sponsoring the event this year. In fact some of the photography will be done from Krystal Klean lifts.
We’ll also be out there running it so good luck and be sure to say hello. You can drop your old running shoes and they are donated to area homeless, browse the Expo and participate in a variety of different runs and walks.
Like most of you we enter the race just to have fun but it’s also the national 15k run and walk championship and there is more than $54,000 in prize money on the line so it attracts runners from all over the world.
