Neuse River Bridge Run happening this weekend in New Bern
NEW BERN, Craven County - The 12th annual Neuse River Bridge Run is Friday and Saturday, along with an accompanying event, the March for Sickle Cell.
Races will begin at Union Point Park in New Bern, with headquarters at the nearby New Bern Riverfront Convention Center, 203 South Front Street. It was postponed in October last year due to Hurricane Matthew.
The races will be separate events, with the Bridge Run raising funds for eight area nonprofits.
The activities get going on Friday, with packet pickups and on-site registrations along with the race expo from 4-8 p.m. at the convention center. That will be followed by the Friday SuperKids Fun Run at 6 p.m.
On Saturday, registration and packet pick-up resumes from 6-6:45 a.m. The first event is the CarolinaEast half-marathon. The second is the WCTI-12 and FOX 8/14 10K event. The Lamar 5K gets started at 8:15 a.m.
