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.
