Frequently Asked Questions

Why is Bridge the Gap offering a hybrid event this year?

For the safety of our participants, we have decided to offer both in-person and virtual options. This allows registrants to choose what they feel most comfortable with while still participating in Bridge the Gap.

In-person participants will sign up for a wave when they register allowing us to follow the safety guidelines with waves of 50 people every 5 minutes.

Why can’t we run across the bridges this year?

Due to the major resurface/repair to the Memorial Bridge and the safety of all participants IDOT and MODOT will not allow anyone on the bridge for this year’s race.

Do you have more info on the canned food drive?

This year we are accepting canned and non-perishable food items to support our local food pantries as we know that food insecurity was heightened last year during the pandemic.

Please bring food donations to packet pick-up on Thursday, May 13 from 4 p.m. – 8p.m. or Friday, May 14 from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. or donate directly to one of the following pantries May 1 – 15, 2021:

  • Barry Food Pantry
  • Horizons Food Pantry
  • Shepherd’s Food Pantry
  • St. Paul’s Food Pantry

Will I receive a medal and post-race food? 

This year’s medal will be the second piece to the 3-year interlocking medal that was started in 2019. You will receive a medal at the finish line, but the end of the race will be a bit different this year.

After you cross the finish please grab your bag of race goodies which will include bottled water, snack and race medal! Please do not forget to grab a bag. We will not be responsible for those that do not pick up their race bag. (Read more COVID & safety related questions on the next tab).
