Covid-19 Guidelines

We are very excited to have you back on the bridge for 2021! We have been getting lots of questions about this year's event. We love your enthusiasm!...And also your patience as we are still navigating putting on a large event during a pandemic. So while we'd like to have everything return to normal, there are still steps we need to take to responsibly and safely put on our event. We are so grateful for all of your support!

Here's what you need to know...

We are capping the event at 50% capacity. That means the In Person 10K Run (including the Dedication Bib) will be capped at 2,000 participants. The In Person Walk will be capped at 250.

There will be NO day of Packet Pick Up or Registration. You must pick up your packet before race day.

Opening ceremonies will be held on the bridge.

There will only be one water stop. Please hydrate before the race and feel free to bring water with you.

While we love having friends and family cheering everyone on, we feel it is best to say no spectators this year.

In person participants must be fully vaccinated or have received a negative Covid test within 3 days of the event. We will ask for proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test as we get closer to the event. Please help us keep our communities safe and healthy. 

If you are unvaccinated, please wear a mask at the starting line and once you have crossed the finish line until you are able to safely social distance.

Any individuals experiencing Covid-like symptoms please stay home and get well.

Please note that while this event primarily takes place in Camden, New Jersey, the midpoint of the bridge is technically Philadelphia. That means that our event must follow all guidelines put forth by Camden, New Jersey, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. So while these are our current plans, it is quite possible that things could change as we get closer to event day. We will stay in touch and let you know if things begin to change.

Here's the FUN stuff!

Our 10K course is the same, but we are moving the host location across the street to the brand new Camden Athletic Fields located at 401 Penn Street, Camden, NJ (the old Riversharks Stadium location)! 

The Virtual 10K and Virtual Walk events are still available.

We are still having the Tonewood Beer Garden! We will be increasing the garden area to allow for social distancing.

The Eagles game is on at 4pm!

On behalf of the RTB Team and Larc School, THANK YOU for all your patience, understanding, and support!
