Valentine’s Day Bridge Run
The Gulf Coast Running Club laced up their shoes for their Valentine’s Day Bridge Run on Saturday.
This Run Forest Run 8K started at Fort Maurepas. Participants ran to the Golden Nugget and back. This team competition has been going on for twenty plus years.
Race Director Leonard Vergunst says the rain did not stop the plans of the race. “The rain is definitely going to hurt our attendance a little bit, but we are hoping to have a decent crowd. We generally run about two hundred people. It looks like we might have a little over a hundred because of the weather.”
Heart shaped trophies and boxes of chocolate were the prizes for the top runners.
