The Show Must Go On! The Pensacola Double Bridge Run Presented by Publix is one of the premier 15K races in the country. Pensacola Sports is pleased to announce the 2021 Double Bridge Run will go on as scheduled on February 6. Although the race will have a very different look, it will have the same great features, and more. While the exact route is still being finalized, the race will begin and end on Pensacola Beach and will include running over the Bob Sikes Bridge twice and into the City of Gulf Breeze. In addition to these course changes, the 15k will also include at least part of the south section of the Pensacola Bay Bridge.
The new Gen. Chappie James Bridge was damaged during Hurricane Sally on Sept. 16, 2020 and is being repaired with a planned reopening in March 2021. Pensacola Sports considered a variety of alternate courses, settling on this route which still includes both bridges and Pensacola Beach, a major draw of the event.
There is much to see and lots to do in Pensacola, Gulf Breeze and Pensacola Beach. This event is an ideal winter getaway. Natural beauty, outdoor enjoyment, history, art, entertainment and shopping are there for you and your friends – take the opportunity for a long, true destination weekend.
