Bay Bridge Run Returns in 2021!
Corrigan Sports Enterprises (CSE) and Sean Ryan Sports Enterprises (SRSE) have teamed up to resurrect the annual footrace across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge in 2021! CSE received formal approval from the Queen Anne’s County Commissioners in May to launch the run on October 31, 2021.
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.
“We are honored to assume the responsibility of the Bay Bridge Run,” said Lee Corrigan, President of Corrigan Sports Enterprises. “The Bay Bridge is such an important landmark to the State of Maryland and we look forward to showcasing it in a new light to those who chose to run or walk with us.”
