Runners conquer Enmarket Savannah Bridge Run

Local News

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – Some drive over Savannah’s historic bridge every day — but how often do you get a chance to run over it?

The Enmarket Savannah Bridge Run has been giving runners a chance to do just that for 28 years.

Saturday morning, the smallest runners kicked off race day with the Kids Run; a chance to go .25 miles and even snag a medal.

That was followed by the 5K, 10K and JCB Double Pump, which includes three trips over the bridge.

Luis Flores was first to cross the 5K finish line and Kyle Rushing took home the 10K medal.

The Double Pump winners were husband and wife duo Brandey and Lacey Krout. They took on the challenge running both the 5K and 10K events, said to be the South’s toughest bridge run.

The post-race party, featuring live music by Whiskey Run, is happening until 11:45 a.m. Stop by Franklin Square for the awards and costume contest — and grab some food while you’re at it.
