Certified by the US Track & Field Association as “the toughest 5K in Georgia” The Bridge Run attracts top athletes from throughout the southeast, along with scores of students and adults who run for health and fun! Many others of all ages register to walk the course, maintaining a slower pace while enjoying the beautiful views of the Brunswick River and Marshes of Glynn.
The day begins at 8:00 a.m. when firefighting teams from throughout the southeast run the bridge in full turnout gear, with the top three teams winning cash awards of $250 to $1,000 for their fire departments. The first place team also receives the coveted Fire Ax Award, along with 12 months of bragging rights!
Runners hit their mark at 9:00 a.m., competing for cash awards of $250 – $1,000, to best their own time, or to simply finish before the walkers begin! A new course record of 16:21 was set during the 2016 run…
The walkers are unleashed at 10:00 a.m. in a colorful explosion of costumes and attitudes, with a determined or more leisurely pace across the bridge and back.
Last year The Bridge Run welcomed over 60 sponsors, registered 2500+ participants and raised $57,000.00 for the cancer care programs at Southeast Georgia Health System.
