GWTC Team Racing event status

Tim Unger

It is NEVER too early to start planning for hot running weather and the Gate to Gate Memorial Day Run.  Celebrate one of Northwest Florida's greatest traditions at Eglin's 33rd annual Gate-To-Gate Memorial DAY Run/Walk. This competitive race is open to the general public, and to all ages. The event has moved back to the actual Monday holiday for 2018. The event will be held on Memorial Day, Monday May 28, 2018 on Eglin AFB. GWTC has a chance to extend its Gate to Gate 4.4 team award streak to twenty-two years in a row!  Since 1997, GWTC has won trophies at the Gate to Gate team event EVERY year, and WON the overall team title for the last 8 years in a row!  We intend on defending our Team Championship once again! The outstanding post-race event will continue to have live music and a GREAT military ambiance!  We will reach out to the NWFTC to attempt to continue our partnership of the “100 brats & beers” post post race party @ Post’l Point Beach after the official race party has concluded.

Gate to Gate event information has officially been released @ https://runsignup.com/Race/FL/EglinAfb/GatetoGateMemorialRun 

There is NO Race Day registration.

The military has some rules that all runners need to be aware of before you set foot on the base.  ALL non-DOD participants MUST be vetted for access to the military base.  A participation affidavit must be sent to the base by May 3rd or you will not be admitted to the base on race day.  I will need to know that you registered to add you to the official GWTC Racing Team. The only way to earn a GWTC Racing Singlet for this event is to let me know you are going to race for GWTC BEFORE Monday May 21, 2018. Email me (Tim Unger) that you have registered for the event @ runner1612@gmail.com so I can add you to our roster.

I would recommend if you are going to attend this race that you get your hotel or camping accommodations set up ASAP.  Hotels and campgrounds are at a premium for the Memorial Day holiday weekend, so you have been warned! Don’t miss this gem of an event if you get the chance folks...
