The 6th Annual Race

Run across The Vincent Thomas Bridge! This 1500 feet long beauty (the 4th longest suspension bridge in California!) creates one challenging race course! Come out on Labor Day to join in!

Registration for the 2014 races is open for the 5.3 Mile Race.

It is with deep regret, sadness, frustration, and yes anger, that we are forced today to announce the official cancellation of our 2nd. Half-Marathon for 2014. We have held out hope for months that the Port of LA officials responsible for refusing to permit the HALF would do what we strongly considered was the "right thing" and issue our permits for the HALF-Marathon. However, after all of this time and considerable effort, the permits will not be issued.

Yes, we will of course continue with our wonderful 5.3 mile race. But rest assured that this is not over for 2015 and beyond. We have spoken with dozens of you about our HALF course over the last several months. You have been unanimous that you consider this a great race to run, and we agree 100% with you this is worth fighting for.
However, it is now time to focus on our 5.3 mile race. We can only hope all of you who have waited for the final verdict on the HALF, will still join us for the 5.3 race this year. We want all of you to help us Conquer The Bridge. You will be heard on race day.

Lastly, I want to personally thank those of you who have written and called to express your support for our efforts. Our race belongs to all of you. Runners and walkers, we are always proud to have you join us, our Non-Profit partners the LAPD Harbor Booster's Club, our wonderful sponsors, and all of the great volunteers who make Conquer The Bridge possible.

Thank you very, very much, and we will see you all on Labor Day Monday!
