1st Annual Hart Bridge Practice – Before the Gate River Run
All are welcome!
In partnership with Marathon High, PRS Running Club is giving you the chance to practice the most feared portion of the Gate River Run, the Hart Bridge.
JSO will close down one lane of the bridge and be on site to ensure everyone’s safety.
Everyone will meet Sunday, Feb 19th at 7am at the Enterprise Car Rental on Atlantic Blvd – see map here – this is the true Gate River Run Course side of the bridge, you’ll be able to run over the Hart Bridge as many times as you’d like until 8:30am.
Parking Update: Due to the huge response, Episcopal School of Jacksonville will be allowing us to use part of their campus for parking Sunday. Enter via the Highland Avenue entrance off Atlantic Boulevard.PRS Running Coach Chris McCaffrey will be leading a dynamic warm up and providing tips for those interested.
If you are not a PRS Running Club Member we ask you to consider a $5.00 donation to Marathon High.
Connie Smith, with Marathon High, will be there to collect the $5.00 suggested donation for non-PRSRC members. By no means will we turn anyone away if you don’t pay the $5.00.
For those who want to take their support of an amazing program to the next level, Connie will also have hooded sweatshirts and black tech t-shirts, all sporting the Marathon High logo!

More about Marathon High:
Founded in February 2011, Marathon High is a regional nonprofit program that challenges at-risk teens to train for a 13.1 mile half-marathon in order to develop positive futures. By training week after week for four months, this after-school program allows high school students to develop athletic skills, social skills, self-respect, self-esteem, courage, strength, confidence, healthy lifestyles and a positive direction.
Marathon High is a free program that is proudly partnered with the Galloway Training Program and the 26.2 with Donna, and we serve teens of all backgrounds and abilities in grades 9-12. The program is also non-competitive — meaning speed does not matter — so we reach teens who have never considered themselves an athlete and are not currently involved in athletics. Marathon High helps students overcome difficulties and obstacles in their lives and allows them to realize that anything is possible if they work hard and are committed.
