Bridges will host a one-mile fun run and 5K race on Thursday, July 10 at 6:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. at St. Paul’s School to benefit its innovative programming and support system dedicated to the long term success of motivated Baltimore City youth and life changing volunteer opportunities for independent school students.
Race participants of all levels can enjoy a summer evening by conquering an adaptation of the St. Paul’s School cross-country course complete with a run up the great Falls Road hill. Runners will share in the accomplishment of finishing a fun, but tough course while benefiting an incredible organization that focuses on supporting and guiding motivated youth.
Registration for the 5k is $20 prior to the race day and $25 on the day of the event. 5k registration includes an originally designed race t-shirt, official race timing by Charm City Run and refreshments after the race. The one-mile fun run is free to register. Interested runners can register for both races by visiting charmcityrun.com or eventbrite.com.
