Introducing New Jersey’s 3 Bridges Run (formerly the NJ10 Miler and 5k). Arguably the MOST beautifully scenic 10 Miler in New Jersey and the Country. Runners are never more than a few feet from the water on the looped course.
This race was created to support the community and help support non-profit organizations.
In 2021, PR Racing was purchased by Green Whales, Inc. Proceeds from this event will now help support water safety and swim lessons for South Jersey youth and special needs children through our programs.
We will also continue with the tradition of making a donation to the EHT Explorers, as PR Racing did. It is our hope that as this race grows we will be able to help more organizations in the local community.
There is a water view for the entire course. We bet this will be your favorite 10 miler and will agree the course is the most scenic one that you will ever run. While this race is the most scenic, it will be one of the most challenging 10 milers that you will do.
There are three bridges on the route and while atop each of them you'll have a commanding view of the waterways and buildings of the three towns. All of the roads have been freshly paved and are fast surfaces to run on. We are bragging that this will be one of the Top Ten Ten Milers in the country, in terms of scenery, course and challenge.
Athletes will run across the Somers Point Causeway (Rte 152) on their way back to John F Kennedy Park in Somers Point to finsh.
The downside of running on bridges is not the downside, but the uphill to get there. Above is an elevation map of the course. Although the elevation above sea level is less than 30 feet, the quarter to half mile ascents are steep by South Jersey standards.
Regardless of the course being more challenging than all of the other 10 Mile races in the NY, NJ, and PA area, this will be a great early race season event to condition you into top fitness shape.
