Gulf Winds team triumphs at 25th annual Gate-to-Gate Run

Gulf Winds Track Club finished at the top of a field of nine open teams at the 2010 Gate-to-Gate 4.4-Mile Road Race, held on Memorial Day morning at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida. The win was payback for GWTC's loss at the 2009 Gate-to-Gate to Northwest Florida Track Club. This time around, GWTC's total of 1:42:26 was just over a minute better than Northwest Florida Track Club, whose four runners totalled 1:43:30 to finish in the runner-up position. Scoring for Gulf Winds TC were Vince Molosky (4th, 23:58), Matthew Dobson (5th, 24:15), Justin Dickieson (10th, 25:49), and Micah Adriani (40th, 28:24). Open teams at Gate-to-Gate consist of four runners at least one of whom must be a woman.

1465 runners finished the 25th annual Gate-to-Gate, which was won by former Air Force Academy distance-runner Ben Payne, who covered the course in 22:14, finishing 280 meters ahead of his nearest challenger, Pensacola's Everett Whiteside. Whiteside ran 23:09 to finish as the top master. US Navy ensign and triathlete Derek Oskutis was third at 23:38, while GWTC scorers Molosky and Dobson were the next two runners across the line. Air Force Academy alumna Ilea Eskildsen was the top woman, finishing twelfth overall in 26:08 and successfully defending her 2009 Gate-to-Gate title. Gulf Winds TC's Adriani was runner-up for the women.
