Bridges & Bluffs is back with in-person and virtual events!
FROM IRONWOOD TO BESSEMER AND BACK!
We have some exciting things in store for the 2021 edition of Bridges & Bluffs!
First, we will once again be able to have an in-person event featuring our Half Marathon, Relay, and 2-Mile events. We had so much fun giving those who didn't want to run an opportunity to support the Iron Belle Trail with the 0K Couch Potato Race that we are bringing that back too!
We will also have the option of competing virtually this year for those who can not attend in-person! That means we have an option for just about everyone!
The other exciting news is that we are moving the start and finish of the race to the Downtown Ironwood City Square! This new park is the centerpiece of Ironwood and provides ample room for all types of events. Stay tuned to see how we will be using this space to make Bridges and Bluffs Even Better!

For 2021, we will once again be having an in-person event! We will be following all guidelines if anything changes, but we expect to be able to have a full event in-person. Plus, we are giving those who can not attend the opportunity to compete in our Virtual event which can be completed anywhere from September 1 through September 25!
For this year, we will be having a new start and finish area in Downtown Ironwood at the new Downtown City Square on the corner of Lowell and Aurora Streets. The races will continue to the Depot Park and along the Iron Belle Trail and back. Turnaround in Bessemer will be on the Iron Belle Trail behind the Bessemer City Hall.
