Key Largo Bridge Run Half Marathon & 4-Mile

Sunday, November 14, 2021 • Key Largo, FL • Course Map

Set for its 11th annual running this fall, the Key Largo Bridge Run will feature a 13.1-mile half marathon and a 4-mile race along a course over the area’s reconstructed Jewfish Creek Bridge, an 18-mile-long stretch of bridge that crosses over the area known as Florida’s Gateway to the Keys.


Runners will start the race by lining up for the event’s shuttle buses at Key Largo School, and then will be transported to the starting line at Key Largo Baptist Church.

Organizers note that the Key Largo Hampton Inn also is offering a special rate to race participants, and they can take shuttles from there to the starting line.

Organizers describe the climb and descent over the Jewfish Creek Bridge as “challenging,” but add that the race course will also feature plenty of flat stretches through the Florida Everglades, where runners will be treated to the natural beauty of south Florida’s wetlands and marshes.

The scheduled starting time for the half marathon is 6:00 AM. Most of the course takes runners over the area’s historic 18-mile Stretch, which connects Key Largo with nearby Florida City.
