The LMCU Bridge Run has been providing the community with a premier starting line to accomplish goals since 2002 and we invite you to join us in person or virtually to keep the tradition "running" (pun intended)! Whether you pick the 10 Mile Run or 5K Run/Walk, be assured you will have a great race day experience running through downtown Grand Rapids and of course, crossing the many bridges in the city.
The 2024 Bridge Run will be located on the west side of the 6th Street Bridge (use 731 Front Ave NW, Grand Rapids, 49504 in your GPS for our physical location). The historic 6th Street bridge is an icon and a favorite of our event participants. Both the 5K and 10 Mile routes will still go through downtown Grand Rapids (over a bonus bridge), with the 10 Mile still heading out through Riverside Park. You can view the tentative routes (we are still working with the City of Grand Rapids to finalize the details) by clicking on each distance: 5K | 10 Mile. You will notice that the 5K route is essentially the same for everyone, which will allow us to start BOTH races at 8am this year!
Our race committee is excited to put on this event for YOU! If you have any questions, please let us know by emailing email@example.com.
We have age-based pricing activated, anyone 18 and under on race day will pay $35 for the 10 Mile & $20 for the 5K (virtual events are not included). There is nothing you need to do other than input your age when you complete the signup process!
It takes over 400 volunteers to create the magic of race day. This is a great opportunity for school teams, families, and individuals to get involved and help our participants have an AMAZING race day experience. We will happily donate $150 to school or non-profit groups that brings out 15+ individuals. Visit our volunteer portal to see and sign up for all of our opportunities.
We are excited to have Gazelle Sports back this year to help provide our awards. The Bridge Run Age Group Awards are as follows:
RunGR will be providing a cash prize for each race (10 Mile & 5K, Male & Female) as laid out below:
Overall prize winners will not be eligible to win age group awards.
The Road Runners Club of America will be presenting special awards for the 10 Mile.
We offer pacers for the 10 Mile to help get you to your goal. The pace groups start at a 7-minute mile and go every 30 seconds to the 12-minute mile pace.
We are excited to announce that the 10 Mile will be part of the 2024 Michigan Runner Series! This is a nifty way to check out other events in the state while earning points when you participate in the Bridge Run. Check out their website for the full 2023 listing of events and how it works.
