Maryland's Chesapeake Bay Bridge 10K Race, officially named Across the Bay 10K, usually brings approximately 20,000 runners together to compete in a 6.2-mile race that includes a 4.3-mile trek across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.

For 2019, due to bridge construction, the race is being held as a virtual race and there will be no run across the bridge for this year. You can do the virtual run and have your medal and shirt mailed to you. The information below is from the prior year's event and is provided as reference.

The race will benefit several local charities including Hasa and Operation Shooting Star. The race includes a weekend of events including a Runners Expo and a Kids Run.
