Join us as we celebrate the special 40th running of
GATE RIVER RUN, including an exciting city-wide
'40 Days of GATE RIVER RUN' scavenger hunt!
- The contest will be held for 40 days from Tuesday, January 24th through the Retro River Run 5k on March 4th. Each week the check-in locations for that week will be published on Instagram, the Gate River Run website (www.gateriverrun15k.com) and will be emailed.
- The check-in location will be in a different location around the First Coast each day.
- Each day, there will be a new 40 Days of Gate River Run poster displayed. The logo on the poster will be one of the logos from the 40 years of the event. Day one will have the logo from the very first race in 1978 and the posters will progress until day 40 has the current year’s logo.
- Participants will be asked to follow the Gate River Run Instagram account (@gateriverrun), upload a photo of themselves with the current day’s poster on Instagram and tag #GRR40 and @gateriverrun.
- A winner will be chosen randomly each day for awesome prizes! Daily prizes include a Yeti cooler, Yeti tumblers, Skechers shoes, sponsor gift certificates, free memberships and much, much more! Every time a participant checks in at a new location they get an additional entry to win the Grand Prize, which is a $500 GATE gas gift card and a 50qt Yeti Cooler! A total value of over $900!
- Only one check-in per location is allowed for the daily prize drawings.
- The Grand Prize winner will be announced on Tuesday, March 7th.
