Double Trouble Bridge 5K is Oct. 21

The Tri-City Track Club is once again hosting its popular Double Trouble Bridge 5K Run/Walk.
Participants will meet at Pharr Park on Gilmore Drive in Berwick for the 8 a.m. race on Oct. 21.
The “double trouble” comes in when racers have to transverse the Long Allen Bridge twice during the trek. The race will begin on Gilmore Drive, turn left onto the Berwick Walking Trail that parallels La. 182 and the cross over the bridge into Morgan City and immediately turn around to cross over the bridge again. The return route will take a right at Fifth Street, travel to Francis Street and end at Pharr Park.
This is a USATF certified course.
Entry cost is $25. Register by Oct. 16 for a T-shirt, but a no T-shirt option is available at a discounted entry fee of $15. Tri-City Track Club members pay $15 to enter. Entry is available online at active.com.
Entry is accepted the day of the race for $25, but there is no T-shirt guarantee.
Proceeds will benefit Tri-City area cancer patients.
Awards will be presented to first through third place overall adult female and male runners, and a first for overall male and female walkers. A first and second place award will be presented to male and female finishers in the following age groups: 12 and under, 13 to 18, 19 to 29, 30 to 39, 40 to 49, 50 to 59, 60 and over.
