Bridges and Bluffs Half Marathon

Bridges & Bluffs 2020 is Going Virtual!

Due to COVID-19, we will be holding a virtual race at reduced registration fees.  Remember that all proceeds from this race go toward maintenance of the Iron Belle Trail in Gogebic County and we can use your support this year more than ever!

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to next year's Bridges & Bluffs event to be held September 2021.

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply run the distance on your own, and report your results - we’ll send you instructions.

Bridges & Bluffs is the main fundraiser to help with maintenance costs for the Iron Belle Trail running through Gogebic County.  This year, we need your help more than ever.  If you are not planning on attending you can use this option to still give your money to help maintain this beautiful community asset.

We understand. We hope to see you again in 2021!

Due to COVID-19, Bridges & Bluffs will be held as a virtual race in 2020! 

The Bridges and Bluffs ½ Marathon and 2-Mile Run/Walk can be run from September 7 until October 18, 2020.  This event is held to raise funds to support management and maintenance of the local section of the Michigan Iron Belle Trail.

The race consists of a half marathon, 2 person half marathon relay team and a 2 mile run/walk option. The main event happenings and race start typically take place at the beautiful Ironwood Depot Park. For the virtual event, you are welcome to run the race distance anywhere and we will have a start/finish and turnaround points marked on the trail.  To top off the event we expect the fall foliage to be at its peak.
