A fun and exciting holiday tradition! The Lampson Cable Bridge Run has been an annual tradition in the Tri-CIties for 39 years. Runners, no matter the distance they choose (1Mile, 5K, or 10K) will start their race crossing over the Columbia River from Kennewick to Pasco, WA on the scenic Cable Bridge and all racers will end at the Lampson warehouse and warm up with Hot Doctor Pepper and enjoy the camaraderie of other participants.

Timing chips are used and awards are given to the top participants in each age category. So if you are a competitive runner or someone who just wants to have fun walking with your friends, the Lampson Cable Bridge Run has what you are looking for.
