Gold Club Membership

The Gold Medal Club is made up of members of the Gulf Coast Runners that donate $100.00 or more per year to the GCR Youth Development Fund. That entire donation goes into the Youth Development Fund and the donors’ regular one years’ membership dues are waived. The Youth Development Fund is designed to help youth running activities in Collier County, with the majority of the Fund used to provide college scholarships to graduating high school senior cross country and distance track runners.
