Neuse River Bridge Run

New Bern, NC

About this Event

OCTOBER 15, 2016. Race across bridges and along our fast, flat courses. The Half & 10K are running the full span of the 65-foot high Neuse River Bridge this year! All three are USATF-certified routes.

Join us for the 12th Annual  Neuse River Bridge Run, held in 300-year-old historic downtown New Bern and offering magnificent views of the Neuse and Trent Rivers. There's plenty to do in and around town, including the Havelock Chili Festival on Saturday afternoon. Or, spend some family time touring downtown New Bern, visiting Tryon Palace, trying one of our delicious eateries or browsing in our shops.

Participants can choose between a half-marathon, 10K or a 5K course. We invite walkers to enjoy the 5K course. All courses are pending USATF certified and runners are timed.

The half-marathon starts at 7 a.m. The 10K race will start promptly at 7:30 a.m. The 5K race will start promptly at 8 a.m. Please arrive at Union Point Park no later than 7:45 a.m. if you are running the 5K. Race day registration and pre-registration packet pickup will close at 6:30 a.m. Don't forget to allow time for parking!
