The Beaufort Lions Club is pleased to announce our 3rd Annual Beaufort Bridge Run 5K Race and 1+ Mile Dog Strut on November 6, 2021, with the course going on and over the two new bridges in Beaufort. These events are the only ones to feature Beaufort’s new bridges – the high-rise Gallants Channel Bridge and the Turner Street Bridge. This run/walk event will actually be the 7th annual for the Beaufort Lions Club. Previous events of the popular Fall race were the Glow Run in 2015 and 2016, the Front Street Gallop races in 2017 and 2018, and the inaugural Beaufort Bridge Run in 2019 and our second BBR in 2020, attracting hundreds of participants – running, walking and barking for charitable causes supported by the Beaufort Lions Club. The Beaufort Bridge Run is quickly becoming a ‘race destination’ for elite, casual and novice runners, literally giving the participants – locals and visitors – a spectacular view of our amazing town!

The Beaufort Bridge Run is again offering a virtual option for this year! You will have the opportunity of completing your race on the actual race course (at your own risk), or running a 5K anywhere you would like and submitting your time via the race website. Virtual race times will be accepted up to 10:00am, November 6, 2021.

Remember, the first 200 to sign up will get a BBR2021 T-shirt, whether you are running on race day or running virtually.
*ONE SHIRT PER PAID PARTICIPANT. Shirts for virtual runners will be available for local pick-up or can be mailed for $5.00 shipping and handling charge. ONLY SHIRTS TO VIRTUAL RUNNERS WILL BE MAILED. T-SHIRTS ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR IN-PERSON OR VIRTUAL RUNNERS UNDER 12 YEARS OLD, but can be purchased separately in advance.

The Beaufort Bridge Run is held in historic Beaufort NC, offering magnificent views of the town, Gallants Channel and Taylor's Creek. There is always plenty to do and so much going on in and around the BeauZone. After the event, Bridge Runners/Walkers, friends and family can visit the Olde Beaufort Farmers' Market, open from 9:00am until 1:00pm, and stroll down Beaufort's beautiful, waterfront boardwalk and famous Front Street to visit amazing shops and restaurants, many of which are sponsors for the BBR2021. So, please, plan to spend some time after the race and see why Beaufort has been voted the Best Small Town in the South by Southern Living Magazine!

In addition to highlighting awareness of diabetes and its health effects, we are seeking sponsors to fund projects for several non-profit organizations that help people in our community, which includes Beaufort, Morehead City, Down East, Carteret County beaches and surrounding areas.

All courses are USATF certified and runners are chip-timed.
