Bridges & Bluffs 2023 has been cancelled
If you would like to help be a part of making Bridges & Bluffs happen in the future, please contact us. Volunteers like you are needed to make this race and fundraiser happen.
FROM IRONWOOD TO BESSEMER AND BACK!
Bridges & Bluffs runs along the Iron Belle Trail through the Western Upper Peninsula. This paved non-motorized trail is part of a trail system that stretches through the whole state of Michigan.
Along the race you will see historic railroad bridges, majestic rock bluffs, and all types of natural beauty. The race takes place on the last Saturday of September every year to ensure that you can take in peak or near-peak fall colors.
All proceeds from Bridges & Bluffs go back to maintaining and caring for the Iron Belle Trail in Gogebic County.
