The majority of the club's race results and pictures are on our Facebook page. It is much easier to post to FB, along with numerous pictures. Plus, everyone who is a member can post their own pictures and results. For our local events, I will continue to post them here. (Please note that sometimes the race results do not post correctly such as the 2011 Swamp Run. I apologize that they are a " jumbled up mess"
but after numerous attempts at trying to type them on individual lines, I finally gave up.)

If you are on FB but not on the club's FB page, go to Okefenokee Track Club and click "Like".
(I was not able to change the page to Okefenokee Track & Cycling Club
without starting over, but I was able to use our new logo.)

32nd Annual Gate River Run 15K-Jax

More than 50 local runners (40 are track club members) participated in the 32 Annual Gate River Run on March 14. It is the USA 15K (9.3 Miles) championship, and features some of the world’s top runners. The Overall winners are former Olympians, with world class speed. This is evidenced by Anthony Famiglietti’s winning time of 43 minutes and 36 seconds. The top female was Amy Yoder-Begley, coming in at 49:51.

But with over 12,000 finishers, this is definitely the people’s race, and a top event for runners of all ages and abilities. Spectators, volunteers, and musical groups line the course from start to finish. The Hart Bridge continues to be the featured landmark and obstacle, especially since it comes at the latter part of the course. However, upon reaching the top, it is downhill to the finish.

The festivities also included a 5K (3.1 Miles) race and 5 local ladies are all smiles after the Run for Charity.
