Run the Mackinac Bridge on Labor Day
There are still a few openings left to run the scenic 4.3 miles over the Mackinac Bridge on Labor Day morning. Michigan's Mackinac Bridge is the longest suspension bridge in the western hemisphere and the fifth longest suspension bridge in the world.
The Mackinac Bridge Labor Day Run is a 4.3 mile non-competitive run organized by the Governor's Office, Michigan Fitness Foundation, and Mackinac Bridge Authority. It has become an end of summer tradition for avid runners. The event precedes the Labor Day Bridge Walk, starts at 6:30 a.m., and is limited to 700 participants. At a minimum, runners are expected to run at least a 12-minute mile and must be able to finish the entire 4.3 miles. It is important to note, this is not a timed event and the course is not certified for distance. The Labor Day Bridge Walk starts immediately after the last wave of runners depart. As it was last year, the bridge will remain closed to public traffic during the 2018 walk, at the recommendation of Michigan State Police (MSP) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Registration is open through midnight on Thursday, August 30, 2018, there is no walk-up or on-site registration. Register here: https://runsignup.com/
