Start off the homecoming celebration with the annual Gator Gallop Virtual Fun Run presented by Truist. This year’s Gator Gallop will be hosted nationally as alumni, students, faculty, family, and even pets can participate regardless of location. Participants pick the distance and course they want to complete and have two weeks to complete it. Gator Gallop is the perfect way for Gators to come together and participate in the Homecoming spirit while staying active. With the registration fee, participants will receive a limited edition Gator Gallop T-shirt, an engraved race medal, a printable race number, and more. You will have the option to receive these items in the mail, or you can pick them up at the J. Wayne Reitz Union at the Florida Blue Key office, room 3160. For more information, contact Elle Chumlongluk at email@example.com .
October 2nd – October 16th, 2020
A virtual race is a race where you pick the distance and course that you want to complete. You will have a two-week window to complete your Gator Gallop. This allows the Gator Nation to continue one of its beloved traditions while staying safe. You can run, jog, skip, or even run on a treadmill! If you are not residing in Gainesville, your running package containing your limited edition t-shirt, engraved medal, and more can be shipped right to your home!
The Truist Gator Gallop Fun Run occurs each year to kickoff the Homecoming events. Friends, families, alumni, and even pets dress up to the max in their orange and blue! This year’s Truist Gator Gallop will be hosted nationally as alumni, students, faculty, family, and even pets can participate from around the United States to celebrate the Gator Nation. The Truist Gator Gallop 2020 can be completed between October 2nd and October 16th throughout the entire nation.
