Nordstrom Beat the Bridge is a 5k or 8k race that goes around the UW campus. Starting and finishing in Husky Stadium, runners must run the first 2 miles to the Montlake bridge within 20 minutes or else the bridge will raise and make you stop for a few minutes. No worries if you do not "beat the bridge," there is a band playing and fun activities while you wait for the bridge, and you can resume the race as soon as it lowers again.
Beat the Bridge was a slightly hilly course, yet not too difficult. Over 10,000 people ran this race, but it was very well organized. Photos available and t-shirt included.
All smiles after the first race and beating the bridge!
