Description

The Beaufort Lions Club is pleased to announce our 6th Annual Beaufort Bridge Run 5K Race and 1+ Mile Dog Strut on November 2, 2024, with the course going on and over the two new bridges in Beaufort. These events are the only ones to feature both Beaufort bridges – the high-rise Gallants Channel (Grayden Paul) Bridge and the Turner Street Bridge. This run/walk event will actually be the 10th 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, the inaugural Beaufort Bridge Run in 2019 and 4 more BBRs in 2020, 2021, 2022 and the 5th annual  in 2023 attracting hundreds of participants – running, walking and barking for charitable causes supported by the Beaufort Lions Club. The Beaufort Bridge Run is a ‘race destination’ for elite, casual and novice runners, literally giving the participants – locals and visitors – a spectacular view of our amazing town!

Dogs are only allowed to participate in the Dog Strut. No dogs allowed in the 5K on the high-rise bridge per the NCDOT!

Strollers are welcome in both events!

Remember, the first 200 to sign up will get a BBR2024 T-shirt! Register by October 1, 2024 to guarantee size. ONE SHIRT PER PAID PARTICIPANT. FREE T-SHIRTS ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR RUNNERS UNDER 12 YEARS OLD, but can be purchased separately in advance, if available.

The legendary Backstreet Pub continues to be 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 BBR2023. 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.
