May 16, 2020

The Great River Bridge Race is more than just a race, it’s an event for everyone to experience. Be one of the few people to cross the Great River Bridge on foot, which is usually closed to pedestrian traffic. Experience the energy of one of the greatest events in Burlington, one that brings the community together where you’ll leave feeling part of something great!
