Bay Bridge Run 2022-Crossing the finish line is just the beginning

Bay Bridge Run 2022-Crossing the finish line is just the beginning

Corrigan Sports Enterprises (CSE) will once again host the annual footrace across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge in 2022! The event will take place 11/13/2022 with waves starting early morning.

The Bay Bridge Run offers the ONLY opportunity to cross the stunning Chesapeake Bay Bridge on foot! Open to both runners and walkers, this event will take place on the eastbound span, which will be closed to vehicles. Participants will start on the west end of the bridge (Anne Arundel County) making the 4.5-mile-long trek across the bridge before finishing at the Chesapeake Bay Business Park (Queen Anne’s County) with a HUGE post-race party! The celebration includes live music, great food, refreshing drinks and family friendly activities.  If you are over 21 years old, you may purchase an all you can drink wristband during registration. The wristband is good for cold beer and hard seltzer during the finish line party. All proceeds will benefit the First Responders of the Kent Island Volunteer Fire Department. Buses will be available to transport participants from outlying parking areas to/from the start and finish points.

Don’t miss the opportunity, register today!
