Registration Now Open for 3rd Annual South Norfolk Jordan Bridge 5K Run & Walk

South Norfolk Jordan Bridge 5k Walk & Run

By Kevin Crum

Sunday, October 12, 2014
8:00 am

Chesapeake, VA – Who will be crowned “King of the Mountain”? The region’s tallest bridge welcomes runners and walkers for a fun, family outing during the Columbus Day holiday weekend. The South Norfolk Jordan Bridge 5K Run & Walk is held at 8 am on Sunday, October 12, 2014, with prizes awarded in 15 categories.

New this year, officials have unveiled the inaugural “King of the Mountain” title which is awarded to the fastest overall male and female finishers! Medals are provided for all participants who complete the flat, out-and-back course across the bridge, and a post-race party with refreshments and music is held under the bridge. Additional event details include:

• Registration: Online registration is now available at http://www.SNJBRiverRace.MettleEvents.com. Fee is $30.
• Parking: Participants are encouraged to carpool to the race site, and free parking is available adjacent to
the Elizabeth River Park next to the bridge. The park remains closed to all vehicle and foot traffic during a
reconstruction period.
• Vehicle traffic: To ensure the safety of all participants, vehicle traffic is not permitted on the bridge from
7:00 to 10:00 am on race day. The Downtown Tunnel (I-264) and Gilmerton Bridge (US-13) are
recommended alternate Elizabeth River crossings during this brief period.

Anyone interested in “test driving” the course in advance can take advantage of the bridge’s Pedestrian Walkway.
Fully ADA accessible, the walkway is free and open during daylight hours for training, daily exercise or simply to
explore and enjoy the view.

“We are pleased to offer this fun and challenging event again this year,” says General Manager Kevin Crum. “The
unique event allows the community an opportunity to experience the many benefits of the South Norfolk Jordan
Bridge up close and at their own pace.”

The 3rd Annual South Norfolk Jordan Bridge 5K Run & Walk is produced by Mettle Events with the generous
support of Propel, Power Bar, Red Star, FM99 WNOR-FM, Seagate Industries and United Bridge Partners. For more
information on the South Norfolk Jordan Bridge, including maps, directions and standard travel fees, visit
