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!
We will follow all CDC and NC state guidelines, if any, at the time of this great event.
Remember, the first 200 to sign up will get a BBR2021 T-shirt! (Size XXL is sold out)
ONE SHIRT PER PAID PARTICIPANT. T-SHIRTS ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR RUNNERS UNDER 12 YEARS OLD, but can be purchased separately in advance, if available.
Due to the limited supply of t-shirts (Covid/supply chain issues), sizes will be based on availability. We will do everything we can to get your preferred size to you!
Backstreet Is Back! The legendary Backstreet Pub is returning as our official host of the Beaufort Bridge Run Post-Race Party! Beer, Mimosas, Bloody Marys, fabulous breakfast food from Turner Street Market and more! Thanks to Liz Kopf for all she does in support of the Bridge Run, the Lions Club and Beaufort!
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.
