My first run at the 2021 Gate Run
Mar 2021 • Solo
The 15k Gate run was my first time running a race in 30 years...

It was a really great experience. I apprehended it since it was my first race. People were incredibly nice, registration was super easy.

The course was interesting even though the weather was fairly cold and windy.

They had live bands and water station every mile. It was very lively. They kept it low key and fun.

The last bridge is quiet an experience: tough climb with strong headwind, then just cruising down to the finish line.

I ended up running under 11’ mile average which is way better than I expected.

Overall very thankful for this well run event during Covid times.

First time running the gate!

This was an awesome run! You run over 2 big bridges , bands are playing about 1 every mile! Huge race with over 15,000 runners! Received a medal a shirt and a glass for entry fee! If you finish in top 10% you also get a hat. If you're a runner it's worth doing once!

A Jacksonville Event!

The Gate River run is a huge event each year in Jacksonville. Thousands of people turn out to run, walk and to cheer.

One of the best events in Jax

3 Kilometers in, nice run so far. Nice sites and great people volunteering to hand out water. I am on a roll and could keep this pace up for days. “Thanks anyway, but no water needed yet”.
6 Kilometers in, wow is that my sweat or is it raining? Didn’t know my legs were this heavy. Doesn’t Jacksonville have any downhill slopes? Beginning to think that “up hill to school, both ways” is a true saying.
9 Kilometers in. Do I still have legs? Can’t feel them. Where are those water people? Can someone call me a cab? Do I still finish if I am driven across the finish line? Things are starting to get blurry.
14 Kilometers in. Definitely don’t have legs. Water! Water! Is that a damn bridge? I am going to roll down the other side like tumbleweed. I normally don’t even drive this far. What was I thinking?
I love the Gate River Run and all the people that participate to put it together each year, especially the volunteers. One of the great events in Jax.

A Jacksonville Staple

Let's face it, it's the reason you didn't give up on your New Year's resolution in February. Too many people and not enough road at this event. Be prepared to run in a giant pack for the first few miles.

Good for all class runners and walkers

I'm an amputee, having lost my left leg 7 years ago. I was a runner before losing my leg but was hesitant to run this large River Run after. Last year (2012) my Prosthetist decided to get a few amputees together to run this race. I ran with the small group. It was the a wonderful experience! I came back to run it this year (2013) with yet a larger group of amputees. Not only did I enjoy our group but also so many of the runners were so supportive, cheering us on, as well as spectators. I also talked with many walkers who had cancer, heart issues etc.. so many stories of over coming and fighting through so many medical struggles. Come out and be inspired!

Not sure why all the hoopla
Mar 2013 • Friends
Well this is Jax's PREMIER running event and I was not too impressed. It is very large and full of stuff like live bands, friendly crowds and nice expo, But that is not what running is about, at least not for me. The roads are awful and rough, people stopping without warning, huge crowds TRYING to run and well, truly AWFUL photos.
The best part was running the Hart bridge, not sure why everyone whines about it so much. It's just another bridge, but if you run on the flat all year, I guess you would be impressed.

Greatest Run in the Country!

What's not fun about running a 5K where a city comes out to cheer on the runners in droves?!?! People host bloody mary parties and invite the runners to stop by. Great event in a great city!
