Just approved. Its up to the bridge, around for a view, then back down to Bridge City.

The Start and Finish will be at the Gumbo Festival Park — where we held the post-race party last year.



The bridge will be blocked to traffic during the race to ensure the safety of all runners/walkers. A water station and port-o-potty will be positioned within the course for convenience. Spectators will not be allowed on the bridge during the race, but will have safe areas to cheer runners as they descend the structure and head for home.


Runners/walkers will hit the afterburners for the home stretch into the Finish Line chute. A professional finish line structure, music, spectators and volunteers cheering you in.

No Shuttle Buses This Year — Start and Finish at the Gumbo Festival Park in Bridge City on the Westbank.

Race Day Packet Pick Up will take place from 6:30 a.m. – 7:30 a.m. at Gumbo Festival Park next to the Finish Line at:

Gumbo Festival Park
