Skyway Bridge to shut down for 10K run


UPDATE 9/15/18: Registration for the Skyway 10K run is closed. Over 30,000 runners looked to fill an available 7,500 spots. Every spot was filled in just 18 minutes.

It’s overwhelming to see the amount of fervor and support the Tampa Bay community is putting behind this event and the non-profit organization that it benefits.

Further details are available on the Skyway 10K’s website.

The 2nd Annual 10K on the Skyway takes place on Sunday March 3.

Runners depart at 3am and the entire event runs through 11am that morning. Can you really beat a sunrise view from the Skyway Bridge?

The hugely successful race raised $560,000 for military families — and hopes to raise more at this year’s event. All registration fees benefit the Armed Forces Family Foundation

Registration for the event is set to open soon. Follow the Facebook event page for further details.

Last year, spots filled up fast, so you’ll want to act quickly if you want to run up and down the landmark.

Who’s ready to run?
