About JTC Running

JTC Running is the creator and operator of the Gate River Run, which since 1978 has been one of the leading road races in the country. Its four different events encompass over 10,000 national and world class athletes, fitness runners, wheelchair athletes, walkers, and children.

JTC Running also conducts:

— the 5-mile Tijuana Flats’ Summer Beach Run, Florida’s oldest race, usually in August;
— the often-grueling 5k & 10-mile Winter Beach Run;
— the Last Gasp cross-country race in December;
— the Guana River 50 km Trail Run;
— and a series of four or five free or nominally priced track meets for competitors of all ages and abilities in the spring and summer.
