Will you say #irunthisbridge?! The elegantly sloping half mile of Deal Island Bridge greets you at the start AND finish of both distances.
This race offers an amazingly unique #runwithaview - the Chesapeake Bay Skipjack Fleet graces the harbor at the start line. It is the last commercial sail powered fishing fleet in North America and the only cohesive sailing fleet in the western hemisphere. You're sure to catch the osprey fishing for their final meals in our marsh creeks before they retire south for the winter. And what better way to recover from that bridge sprint than with a walk on the beach? Deal Island Beach is renown for it's treasure of sea glass!
Held in conjunction with Deal Island Chance Volunteer Fire Company's Skipjack Bike Tour. Make it a duathlon!
