Across the Bay 10K is back again! Sunday November 9th 2014 the 6.2 mile point to point course will take runners over the 4.35 mile Bay Bridge. In order to qualify for the 20,000 racers to qualify they had to average a per-mile pace of 19 minutes or less. The sold out event is to benefit several charities including the Yellow Ribbon Fund, a Maryland-based organization that helps injured serviceman upon their return.
The event has not taken place since 2006 due to escalating cost and security concerns. A team from Maryland's Eastern Shore secured an agreement with the MdTA though a partnership with Queen Anne's County to stage a professional road race across the bridge.
The Bay Bridge spans over the Chesapeake Bay which was opened in 1952 and was the world’s longest continuous over-water steel structure. The parallel span was added in 1973. Though no longer the longest, the bridge remains heavily traveled as a link from Virginia, Washington, D.C. and Baltimore to coastal communities such as Ocean City, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, and the Eastern Shore.
