Pensacola’s Signature Race – February 4, 2017

Pensacola Sports is pleased to announce registration for the 2017 Double Bridge Run Presented by Publix will open on Saturday, August 13.  Participants can register at

2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the iconic Pensacola race.  The event will feature a new logo and other additions and benefits to the runners.

Runners and walkers are encouraged to register early to secure their spot in the race as both races are expected to sell out – 3,500 in the 15K and 1,500 in the 5K.  The 15K race has sold out the previous four years.

The Pensacola Double Bridge Run is one of the premier 15K races in the country.  The 15K carries runners over two bridges, across Pensacola Bay and Santa Rosa Sound. It runs from downtown Pensacola with a tour that includes the historic district, and picturesque Bayfront Parkway, a run through Gulf Breeze, and onto Pensacola Beach. The 5K invites both runners and walkers to travel from Gulf Breeze to beautiful Pensacola Beach on Santa Rosa Island.  Both races finish in the Pensacola Beach Boardwalk parking lot.
