Known as the Mighty Mac, the Mackinac Bridge is the longest suspension bridge in the western hemisphere and the fifth longest suspension bridge in the world. Imagine for a moment - the sounds of seagulls flying above, ferry boat horns and waves crashing on the shoreline below, views of Mackinac Island and vast Great Lakes Vistas alongside you, the sun rising and washing the sky with glorious shades of orange...this is the Labor Day Mackinac Bridge Run, and it is the only running event on the Mackinac Bridge.
This non-competitive run is organized by Michigan Fitness Foundation, the Governor's Council on Physical Fitness, Health and Sports, Michigan Department of Transportation, and the Mackinac Bridge Authority. The run takes place before the Labor Day Bridge Walk and is limited - up to 700 participants. At a minimum, runners are expected to run at least a 12-minute mile and must be able to finish the entire 4.3 miles. It is important to note, this is not a timed event and the course is not certified for distance.
The 20th Anniversary of the Labor Day Mackinac Bridge Run takes place on September 2, 2024!
Registration includes a technical tee shirt, finisher medal and a race bib.
***This is the only running event on the Mackinac Bridge. This is a fun run, therefore, the race is not chip timed.
