About the Event

Quickly becoming one of the premier 15K (9.3 miles) races in the country, the Double Bridge Run Presented by Publix gives runners a full view of our great area. Beginning in downtown Pensacola at the Vince Whibbs Community Maritime Park, the 15K winds through historic Pensacola, over the 3-mile bridge spanning Escambia Bay, through Gulf Breeze, over the Bob Sikes Bridge and the Intercostal Waterway, and finishing at the Pensacola Beach boardwalk!

The race also features a 5K (3.1 miles) race which begins in Gulf Breeze, runs over the Bob Sikes Bridge and uses the same finish line on the beach.

Course Start Lines

The starting line for the 15K race is at Maritime Park 301 West Main Street, Pensacola, FL 32502. The starting line for the 5K race is at 10 Daniel St. in Gulf Breeze. The finish line for both races will be in the Pensacola Beach Boardwalk parking lot. 15K runners are required to keep a 14-minute per mile pace.
