The Southeast Georgia Health System
Foundation Bridge Run has become a signature
event for the Health System and the Golden Isles.
Unique among bridge runs, the races take place on
the 7,780-foot Sidney Lanier Bridge and the Half
Marathon extends through Historic Brunswick. At
its center, the bridge measures 480 feet high above
the Brunswick River,
the tallest span in the
Certified by the
U.S. Track and Field
Association as the
toughest 5K in Georgia,
each year 5K runners
start on the
southbound side of the
bridge, go over, and
return back, crossing the bridge twice and this year
the truly brave at heart can run the 10K Double
Pump - running across the bridge twice! The event
is not for the timid, and should only be attempted
by those who have properly trained.
The Bridge Run also includes a fun walk after
the race is over, followed by a family-friendly
festival featuring community vendors, food and
drink, entertainment and children's activities.
Proceeds benefit the Health System’s cancer and
cardiac care programs.
