Fun and Fitness

Runners and walkers are invited by the Door County Silent Sports Alliance to participate in the third annual Bridge to Bridge Holiday Lights Fun Run at 6:30 pm on Dec. 16. The free, non-competitive 5K event will be held on sidewalks and streets, starting and finishing at Kitty O’Reilly’s Irish Pub, 59 E. Oak St., Sturgeon Bay. The route will include Madison Avenue, Michigan Street, Third Avenue and Memorial Drive as well as both downtown bridges.

“The idea of this event is to encourage fun and fitness as we celebrate the season in Door County,” said Bob Richards, vice-president of the Door County Silent Sports Alliance. “We hope to see a lot of fitness enthusiasts out there for the run/walk and then inside for some refreshments and holiday cheer.”

Participants are encouraged to arrive early to store dry clothes at Kitty’s. Although there is no entry fee, participants will be asked to sign a waiver inside before the event begins. Door County Silent Sports Alliance is a not-for-profit organization that promotes active and healthy lifestyles. For more information visit
