Yes. People of all athletic abilities are encouraged to participate. There is, however, a time limit of 2.5 hours in which to complete the 6.2 mile course. For those that cannot complete the event in this timeframe, we will send a shuttle to pick you up along the course.

If you are not able to run, you have several options:

  1. Deferrals – you may defer your registration to the 2018 event for a fee of $25. Deferral period ends on November 1, 2017 when online registration closes. Absolutely no deferrals allowed past this point.
  2. Cancel Your Entry – you may cancel your entry by emailing us at [email protected]. When you cancel, all fees are non-refundable and your decision is final – you cannot be reinstated into the 2017 bridge race without going through the registration process again from the beginning.
  3. Charity Bibs – If you purchase a charity bib through an official charity partner, please contact that charity directly for cancellation or transfer options.
In the case of extreme weather, the State of Maryland, through the MDTA, has the right to cancel the event if they feel that our participants are in danger. If this happens, there will be no refunds for registrations or other expenses incurred by race participants. We’ll do everything possible to make sure that the RACE GOES ON! Any change will be posted on our website and Facebook page.

Runners have the option of purchasing a parking pass for a fee of $10 which grants access to parking in a predetermined official event satellite parking and/or shuttle lot. Runners are not required to purchase a parking pass and may be dropped off at a parking and/or shuttle lot by a friend or family member. Everyone must be shuttled to the Start Area. Specific parking details will be published on our website as they become available and all participants will get detailed information in their race packets prior to November 5th. Please note – participants MUST ride a shuttle to the start.

Our photography team works incredibly hard to capture photos of all participants. Not only will our photo team be stationed on the bridge, but you will find them along the course and at the finish line as well.

Additionally, race Cameos are set up at the finish area where you can get your picture taken alone or with friends and family. Getting a group shot is a great way to celebrate your race and remember the moment!

Please see the Parking and Shuttle Page for spectator parking details.

Details about bib pick up and mailing are available on the registration page.
