The Bay Bridge Run is one of the largest, most exciting mid-distance events anywhere. 4.35 miles of the 10k course takes place over water, on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, near Annapolis, Maryland. Maryland’s most unique experience is back! After a successful return in 2021, the Bay Bridge Run is scheduled … MORE

    Course is very scenic running over bridge with smooth transportation to start area. However, rules are not followed by countless walkers that start in front of race and walk more than 2 across. Many of whom ignore/refuse to move over even after announcing that you’re passing on their left. Race officials need to be present on bridge to enforce rules to maintain safety and a positive race experience. The rules are clearly stated on signs and in all race literature, many of us expect that they will be enforced so that we don’t have to weave in and out of walkers for the entire race. We started with our C-730am corral and should not have encountered these issues. After party has good entertainment, not a fan of $12-15 charge for unlimited beer bracelet when most of us only drink 1-2.

    What changed? This is my third year and it was such a disappointment. The medals were identical to last year and the t-shirts were so cheap, I threw it out. For the price of entering, you would think you could do better. Previous years were much better!

    The parking and shuttle buses were well organized.
    There were more walkers than runners, and they walked anywhere/everywhere they wanted and got annoyed when runners tried to get past them.
    The bus ride back to our parking took about as long as it took us to run the race.
    The medal was nice.

    This race is much larger than I had realized – about 20,000 people. One side of the bridge is completely closed to traffic (there are technically two bridges that run side-by-side over the water) and offer great views of the Chesapeake Bay. There is a walker and a runner side to help with traffic – though some walkers didn’t really abide by that rule.

    Considering how many people there are, and how narrow the bridge is, this event ran pretty smoothly. Everything from the school bus shuttles, staggered start, lots of port-o-potties, and the bag of goodies post-race was well executed. There was, however, a lot of traffic so I recommend leaving much earlier than you think – especially if you are in one of the later waves.

    The swag is pretty good for a 10K – gender specific tech-tees, and a puzzle piece medal (it connects to the medals of future race years). You can purchase an all-you-can-drink beer bracelet at the expo. The race also sends you a video of you crossing the 5K mark and the finish line. It also gives you stats on how many runners you passed along the way and how many passed you – kind of fun to see!

    Memorable Moments:
    – Marylanders decked out in their state flag apparel
    – The MC asking for volunteers to sing the National Anthem at the start of each wave – people were NAILING this and the crowd LOVED IT!
