Across the Bay 2014: Pre-Register for the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Run

Chesapeake Bay Bridge Run

Ever since I was young, driving across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge symbolized something special — usually a trip to the beach. Traversing the bridge meant leaving work behind. Everything changed when we went over the bridge: The heavy and oppressive heat would lighten with the salt-laced breeze; even the air even smelled different.

Now, imagine running across that bridge. Instead of trying to spy sailboats and cruise ships from the confines of a car, you’ll have the entire vista of the magnificent Chesapeake stretched out before you. You’ll start at beautiful Sandy Run park, then run the entire 4.3 mile span across the bridge, concluding on Route 50 where shuttles will be waiting to take you to the post-race celebration.

You don’t want to miss this inaugural 10K Across the Bay race. This race will surely be popping up on countless “must run” lists. Pre-register today to ensure you get a spot. The race is scheduled for November 9, 2014.

There are only 2500 pre-registration tickets available, so don’t delay. Pre-registration happens at retail locations throughout MD, VA, PA and DE. Holabird Sports is proud to be a pre-registration retail outlet. Visit our store at 9220 Pulaski Highway in Baltimore, MD. For more information about the race and pre-registration visit BridgeRace.com.

General registration will open online November 9, 2013.

    I will not be participating in this event because the Chesapeake Bay Foundation is being excluded as a sponsor due to their environmental stand against the unrelated Four Seasons development on Kent Island. This is pure political pressure and I urge everyone to boycott this event until the sponsors relent

    There needs to be a 13.1 and 26.2 across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. I know there was one about 10 years ago. It needs to be brought back.

      With compliance from state and local agencies (and good weather), this is certainly possible!
