Key Largo Bridge Run drawing hundreds from around globe

More than 330 people have already registered for the third annual Key Largo Bridge Run, an out-and-back foot race offering panoramic views of the Upper Keys from the Jewfish Creek Bridge on Nov. 12.

It’s a 10K, half marathon and 5K run/walk event. Entrants hail from 24 states, the Bahamas, Brazil, Germany and Switzerland.

Runners along the USA Track Field-certified course cross the 65-foot-high, 1.25-mile-long Jewfish Creek Bridge and occupy the northbound lanes of the bridge and the southern portion of the 18-Mile Stretch.

The Key Largo Bridge Run is to be held in conjunction with a Health and Fitness Expo sponsored by Florida Keys Area Health Education Center. The expo is set for noon to 6 p.m. Nov. 11 at the Key Largo Holiday Inn, mile marker 100.

A variety of vendors and health screenings are available from noon to 9 p.m., and race participants can pick up race packets during that time. A silent auction is scheduled, as well.

A spaghetti dinner Nov. 11 is to be hosted by DiGiorgio’s Cafe Largo, mile marker 100 bayside, between 4:30 and 11 p.m. Tickets are $12 per person.

Race entry fees are $35 per person for the 5K, $70 for the half marathon and $50 per person for the 10K through Nov. 4. Participants age 17 and under pay $12. Proceeds benefit the Key Largo Baptist Church, the Autism Society of the Keys, Florida Keys Down Syndrome Educational Fund and the Key Largo Bridge Run Scholarship Fund.
