The Gulf Coast Running Club is a non-profit organization whose primary purpose is the promotion and encouragement of running for physical fitness and health. The membership is comprised of men, women, and children of all ages representing a wide range of running experience. We administer road races, run/walks, children’s runs, biathlons, triathlons, and social events for the general public in cooperation with various community organizations, agencies, and businesses. Proceeds from GCRC races and membership fees are put back into the club to purchase or replace equipment, print, and mail monthly newsletters, race results, and calendar of events to members, and to purchase awards for special events. All work in promoting the club, putting on races, and managing the clubs’ internal affairs is done by volunteers.
