The 2020 First State Bank Key Largo Bridge Run introduces the 2020 First State Bank Bridge the Gap Virtual Challenge.

Due to the circumstances this year, the Key Largo Bridge Run Half Marathon & 4-Mile Run/Walk was not able to take place.  In its place is the 2020 First State Bank Bridge the Gap Virtual Challenge.

The virtual challenge will only have one requirement: to cross over a bridge within your route.  You can run, walk, bike or skate and go as far as you like. The best part about it is you can do it anywhere.

“Our goal is to keep people motivated and healthy as they look forward to coming back to Key Largo in 2021,” says race director Henry Menendez. “I will actually be able to participate this year virtually with all my fellow runners and walkers.”

All registrants will receive a shirt and finishers medal upon completion of their challenge. In addition, all proceeds will go to the Key Largo Rotary Club. The Key Largo Rotary Club is a nonprofit organization that uses its efforts to help the local community.
