Experience an urban 5K as you traverse sidewalks, streets and bridges!

The only “urban” 5K in the area! The annual Bridge2Bridge gives you a new perspective of the downtown core, foot view versus vehicle view. Feel the thunder of cars and trucks overhead as you travel under I-70. Experience the sway of two different bridges crossing the Kansas River. Mix it up with sidewalks and street surfaces.

A chip timed event for both runners and walkers with CASH PRIZES for overall male and female runners. Awards given to eight age categories (ranging from age 10 and under to 61 and up) + Top Three Overall – male and female for runners. Pre-registered runners and walkers receive “the shirt”.

Check-In for both pre-registered and on-site registration starts on race day at 9am, with race start times of 10am for runners and 10:15am for walkers. Walkers with strollers will be positioned at the end of the walking group and pets are not allowed on the course. Both the race start and finish will be at 515 S. Kansas Avenue, Topeka, KS.

The course is USATF certified as of March 10, 2014.

Parking is free in the downtown area on weekends, including the City parking garages.

The original Bridge2Bridge 5K was created by the 2013 Downtown Class of Leadership Greater Topeka as a benefit for Downtown Topeka, Inc. (DTI). Proceeds help support the 30+ FREE events we hosted by DTI for the community – 20 concerts, Touch-A-Truck, Cruisin’ the Capital Car Show, 2 Outdoor Movies, Jazz & Food Truck Festival, BOO It Downtown Candy Crawl, and 4 major parades.
