After limited field last year, runners clamoring to return to full-field at Gate River Run
Things are getting back to normal at the Gate River Run. For the most part. One year after race organizers limited the field to 8,000 participants, about half of the usual number, they’re back to a full field, and runners are not missing their chance to be a part of it.
Two of the fastest women at the Gate River Run gave birth shortly before racing
Laura Campbell (second from left) and Mae Barker (right with pink hat) both finished among the fastest female runners of the Gate River Run soon after giving birth. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – They ran the Gate River Run before their new babies could crawl. Campbell about five and a half months ago and Barker less than a month before the Gate River Run. In training, Barker ran up the day before she gave birth, while Campbell didn’t run while pregnant. Then, less than a month later, she was lined up at the Gate River Run.
Gate River Run will cap entries at 8,000 for 2021 race
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Gate River Run will limit its field to 70% capacity and put numerous other safeguards in place for its 2021 event due to the coronavirus pandemic. The biggest change is capping race entries at 8,000 for the marquee 15K event. The Gate River Run has been televised live on WJXT for years.
