Thank you to all who registered as a participant
Your health and that of your family are of utmost importance to those organizing the annual Vilano Bridge Run. As such, due to the Governor’s ban on mass gatherings to curtail the COVID-19 virus, we are forced to cancel the 24th Annual Vilano Bridge Run, scheduled for March 21st.
This race is an important fundraiser for the Florida School for the Deaf & Blind and North Shores Improvement Association. Please know that your race registration fee will continue to go toward supporting these valued organizations and that your generosity is greatly appreciated.
Runners are optimists by nature and for every door closed, another is opened. We are hard at work planning a Vilano Bridge Virtual Race.
This will allow you to run at your convenience, receive your race T-shirt and finisher medal and submit your times to 1st Place Sports for posting.
True, you won’t be able to place in your age group but you will be able to stay safe and run on your own schedule. While you won’t get to enjoy our fun after-party, we do invite you to come on down and run your virtual race here on our beautiful bridge.
We’ll be widely sharing details on how to participate in the Virtual Run in the coming days.
Again, thanks for your patience and understanding during these tough times and know that your continued support of these two local charities is greatly appreciated.
Our thanks go out to our Title Sponsors Bob Holmquist & Charlene Garra of Watson Realty
Partner Sponsors Serenata Beach Club, Flagler Health +, Vinny’s Pizza, Ancient City Brewing, Dog Rose Brewing Company, Beach 105.5 and the Dilbert Clan. We also thank the Gold Sponsors Cora Johnston Generation Homes, The Garden Produce, Donovon Heat & Air, Porsche Jacksonville, Atlantic Beach & Tennis, Caps on the Water, Fountain of Youth, Magic Beach Motel, Metro Diner, Franscenes, Hue Design, Inc., Metalartz, Oceanside Cleaning, Tijuana Flats and our many Silver Sponsors.
Thank you to our sponsors
The Vilano Bridge Run Planning Committee, the North Shores Improvement Association and the Florida School for the Deaf & Blind greatly appreciate your generosity in serving as a sponsor for this year’s Vilano Bridge Run.
Unfortunately, due to the current actions to curtail the COVID-19 virus, we are forced to cancel this year’s race. We’ve begun the work of reaching out to those registered for the race using the message below.
We are currently working with First Place Sports to develop and administer a “Virtual Race” to keep registrants excited about doing their own run while supporting our local charities.
As you can see, we’ve referenced your support of the event and our community. We hope you’ll plan to be a part of our special 25th Anniversary race next year.
Until then, please accept our thanks and be safe during these trying times.
The Vilano Bridge Run Planning Committee, (a committee made up solely of volunteers).
