Applications are now available for the 19th Annual Ford Island 10k Bridge Run taking place April 2 at 7 a.m.

Approximately 3,000 runners are expected to participate. The course will be similar to last year. The race begins at Adm. Bernard “Chick” Clarey Bridge. Runners will cross the bridge, circle Ford Island, then cross back over the bridge and finish at Richardson Field.

The test for many of the runners will be crossing the bridge, with several uphill and downhill sections over the span of the bridge. Winds blowing off the water may add to the challenge.
