Registration for remote participants is required by March 24 to ensure enough time to mail your shirt and racing bib to you by race day.

KIDS' CORNER AND RACE: The free Kids' Corner, supervised by WLC's dance team and coaches, will be available to entertain children during the adult race. After the adult race, kids 12 and under will be invited to run around the Raabe Stadium track. No registration is necessary.

WAC MONTH MEMBERSHIP: Whether you're looking to improve your 5k time or if this is your first race, participants who register for Gary's Gallop through March 17 receive a complimentary individual month membership to the Wisconsin Athletic Club's Wauwatosa location. Simply take the authorized confirmation flyer you'll receive in the mail after registering for Gary's Gallop, plus your driver's license, to the Tosa WAC to redeem your membership (must be at least 18 years old). The 30-day membership begins at the time of redemption. This offer is for non-WAC members only and not transferable. It cannot be used to add a month to an existing membership.

SHOE DRIVE: Join us in supporting Soles for Jesus by bringing unwanted shoes to fill our donation bins at Gary's Gallop. It is estimated that more than a billion pairs of unworn shoes are taking up space in U.S. basements and closets. Some are outdated or outgrown, but many of them are in good condition and considered a treasure to the millions of people who live barefoot lives in developing countries like Africa. Soles For Jesus exists to share the love of Christ by distributing shoes to the underserved. Cash donations will also be accepted, as it costs about $2 to send a pair of shoes to Africa. To learn more, visit the Soles for Jesus website.
