The ARP is Host to Big Field of Runners by Herb Wills

It isn't every Saturday that there's a major invitational cross-country meet in Tallahassee with hundreds of runners, many from out of town or even from out of state. It isn't every Saturday, but sometimes it seems that way. On the last Saturday of August...

Welcome to Gulf Winds Track Club! Don’t let the name fool you – GWTC is about promoting and supporting running on the track, on the roads and on the trails.

GWTC Volunteer Spotlight

It has been said that in most non-profit organizations 10% of the members do 90% of the work.  GWTC, though a not-for-profit entity, has historically been made up of a large number of individuals who have given much back to the club and the sport that has added so much to their lives.

There is simply no disputing that GWTC ceases to exist if its volunteers suddenly disappeared.  Fortunately, that is not going to happen.  But there is always a need for new volunteers.  Yes, it is work, but it is also very rewarding.  This feature, Volunteer Spotlight, will tell the volunteer story.  Our focus will be on members who volunteer but do not get a lot of recognition. Without these volunteers, things start falling apart very quickly.    

Gulf Winds Track Club continues to be volunteer-driven and volunteer-needy. 

Volunteer Spotlight Tarik Noriega

Volunteer Spotlight - Tarik Noriega Tell us briefly about your running experience. I am mostly a sprinter, but also enjoy the challenge of any race up to a 5K. Are you a member of GWTC?  How long? Yes, 13 years. You were out at Miller Landing Madness...

Volunteer Spotlight Jean Bowling & Rod Anderson

Jean Bowling joined Gulf Winds Track Club in 1979 after moving here from Montreal, Canada.  She consistently placed in her grand prix age groups, the 50s, from 1988 to 1994, and still gave her competitors a run for their money for some years after that...

Volunteer Spotlight Tom Scott

Try as he might, Tom Scott cannot get race directors to let him do anything but take photos of the runners. That’s probably because he is a Photographer Extraordinaire, catching us at our best, worst and most triumphant moments.Tom is a longtime runner and...

Volunteer Spotlight Mark Priddy

Modesty is a common character trait that I encounter each and every time I approach a potential “Spotlight” volunteer.  As you will read, Mark Priddy is no exception to that rule.  Read on, and if it’s been a while since you’ve volunteered at a race or if...

Volunteer Spotlight Jay Wallace

Whether it’s running or scoring, Jay Wallace is a “quick” study!This month’s featured volunteer took on the task of learning the Club’s scoring system to provide results for last month’s multi-distance cross country event: Miccosukee Madness 3K/5K/8K. Even...

Volunteer Spotlight The Dexters to the Rescue

Volunteerism is a very personal thing. Some people love to jump in with both feet and fill every spare moment; others prefer to dip their toes in and test the water gradually with smaller jobs of a more finite nature. Both types of volunteer spirit are...

Volunteer Spotlight Peg Griffin

This month’s “Spotlight” shines on Peg Griffin, an outstanding runner and volunteer who spends about as much time on club business as she would a full time job.  If you have ever wondered where the results of that last race you ran came from or how they...

Volunteer Spotlight Terry Massa

“What made me want to volunteer was the great feeling I had at my first 1/2 marathon at Disney and seeing all those volunteers cheer me on,” says Terry Massa, who since 2005 has volunteered in more than 19 GWTC events, including directing her own...

Volunteer Spotlight The Brew Crew

GWTC cannot survive without the efforts of hundreds of volunteers.  In a new feature the webmonster plans to shine a little light on some of those volunteers in hopes that it will convince you to be an active volunteer!Tim Brewton, February 15, 2007The...

Volunteer Spotlight Burt Melaugh

Sometimes the best surprises just appear in your inbox.  Today’s race directors know just how special it is to find an email in their inbox saying “can I help somehow?”   That is exactly what happened last November when Burt Melaugh answered a desperate...
