We anticipate having a final event date in January of 2015. Stay tuned and CLICK HERE to learn more about the waiting list and to sign up!

CUP-LESS | RACING

Across the Bay 10K is excited to announce that we are going cup-less! The organizing team, our local partners, public safety agencies and Chesapeake Bay Conservation groups have made the decision not to risk having 50,000+ cups turned loose on the bridge – and potentially into the bay! The safety issues connected with slipping, the sheer volume of cups scattered about the bridge and the potential environmental pollution implications to the Bay simply aren’t worth the risk.

So what’s the plan you ask… simply go cup-less!
