The annual U.S. Track and Field Association certified 5K Bridge Run for 2017 across the picturesque Sidney Lanier Bridge in Brunswick, GA is awaiting your legs and feet for Saturday, February 18th.
WHAT IS THE BRIDGE RUN?
“The Southeast Georgia Health System Foundation Bridge Run across the scenic Sidney Lanier Bridge in Brunswick, Georgia, has become a signature event for the Health System and the Golden Isles. Unique among bridge runs, the event takes place entirely on the 7,780-foot Sidney Lanier Bridge. At its center, the bridge measures 480 feet high above the Brunswick River, the tallest span in the state.”
“Participants start on the southbound side of the bridge, go over, and return back, crossing the bridge twice. The event is not for the timid, and should only be attempted by those who have properly trained.”
“The Bridge Run also includes a fun walk after the race is over, followed by a family-friendly festival featuring community vendors, food and drink, entertainment and children’s activities. Proceeds benefit the Health System’s cancer care programs.”
