An Amazing View During the Navy’s 32nd Bay Bridge Run/Walk

As commuters we don’t often get the opportunity to appreciate the beautiful view from the Coronado Bridge. However…once a year, pedestrians are allowed to run or walk across the bridge during the Navy’s Bay Bridge Run/Walk, presented by SDG&E, Leidos, and the Unified Port of San Diego. On Sunday, May 20, for the 32nd Run/Walk, join thousands of fun-loving, military-supporting runners and walkers by participating in one of San Diego Magazine’s “Ultimate San Diego Bucket List” events; the top 50 things every San Diegan must do. Registration is now available at See you on the bridge!

The scenic 4-mile racecourse, sanctioned by the U.S.A. Track and Field Association, starts in downtown San Diego on Park Blvd. between the Hilton San Diego Bayfront and the San Diego Convention Center and finishes in Coronado’s Tidelands Park.

The Navy Region Southwest Morale, Welfare, and Recreation Program (MWR) hosts this outstanding event that joins the San Diego community with the military for their shared enjoyment. Profits generated from the event directly support quality of life programs at San Diego Navy installations.

Race participants receive a commemorative race shirt; transportation back to the Hilton San Diego Bayfront after the event via bus or ferry, compliments of Flagship Cruises & Events; access to the event’s Runners Expo; LIVE entertainment and entry into prize drawings.

Unique awards will be presented for age group and team division winners.

The success of this event relies on the generous support of Navy MWR by presenting sponsors San Diego Gas & Electric, Leidos and the Unified Port of San Diego.
Additional sponsors include, Hilton San Diego Bayfront, KIND, Flagship Cruises & Events, Alaska Airlines, Armed Forces Dispatch, Lincoln Military Housing, Navy League of San Diego, Road Runner Sports, USAA, Klinedinst PC, and Military Guides.
