Bay Bridge Run

Sun October 31 - Wed November 24 Annapolis, MD 21409 US
Start Times




The safety of the participants is our highest concern.  The width of the eastbound span of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge is only 26 feet.  To ensure the safety of the participants, the Bay Bridge Run will begin in waves of approximately 1,500 participants each.  The waves will begin on a staggered timeline every 15 minutes beginning at 7:00 a.m. and ending at 8:30 a.m.  Start times for the Bay Bridge Run will be selected by the participant during registration.  Those wishing to compete for overall awards should select the 7:00 a.m wave.  The participant bibs will indicate which wave you are assigned to start in.  NOTE:  Once a wave is full, you will be unable to select that wave and must select an alternate start time.


CHANGING WAVES: Registered participants can edit their wave up until October 12.   This is useful for those who want to start in a different wave with friends or family. After October 12, you cannot make edits to your wave selection.  Thank you for your cooperation.  To make edits to your wave, follow these steps:
