In just a few weeks, 25,000 people from across the country will participate in a historic event--the second annual Across the Bay 10K Chesapeake Bay Bridge Run!

Scheduled for November 8, the run begins on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and finishes with a post-race celebration on Kent Island. Most of the course--4.35 miles--will be on the bridge itself overlooking the Chesapeake Bay. The dual-span bridge doesn't allow pedestrian traffic at any other time of the year, so this is a unique opportunity"�and the view is amazing!

You can be part of the fun and support CBF! As an official charity partner, we have a supply of charity bibs available for $150 which gets you a guaranteed entry into the race and provides a donation to CBF. Click here to find out how to get your charity bib! 

Running not your thing? Sign up to be a volunteer! This race is going to be BIG, so we will need lots of help to ensure it's a success.

As a charity partner, CBF is responsible for recruiting hundreds of volunteers. Positions are available at the Race Expo on Friday and Saturday as well as on the morning of the race. All volunteers will get a long-sleeved T-shirt to wear for their shift and keep as a thank you! You'll also get a sack lunch to keep you energized.

When you sign up to volunteer, make sure to say that CBF referred you.

Thanks for your support"�we hope to see you there!
