Truckers, others hit the road running, not driving at GATS

Among truckers participating were Freight Team Run Smart operator Jeff Clark (left) and Mercer-leased owner-operator Matt Buchanan.

The Fit for the Road 5K run stage was held early Saturday morning, Aug. 29, at the Great American Trucking Show in the GATS truck parking lot at Fair Park.

Prior to the event, as always in Dallas in August, race organizers worried about the heat, but a bit of a light rain shower helped cool off the dozens of the participants.

Proceeds from the run were donated to the St. Christopher Truckers Development and Relief Fund, known among drivers as “the truckers’ fund” for its work providing financial and other assistance to operators in medical emergencies.
