38th Annual Bridge of Flowers 10K Classic and Steve Lewis Subaru 3k Charity Walk & Run

Walk, Run, or Volunteer at this outstanding community event, which has brought people to Shelburne Falls from all over Massachusetts and beyond for 38 years. 

Heading out

Race day registration opens at 7 AM.

Start times:
8:15 AM Steve Lewis Subaru 3k Charity Run Walk
9:00 AM Bridge of Flowers 10K Classic

10K Course Description:
The initial 3k loop begins with a gradual climb from the village center's historic 1890 iron bridge, where everyone lines up for the start. It then wends through neighborhood streets. The 10k race is a figure 8 loop, and the second loop passes over the same iron bridge, followed by the renowned 1k Crittenden Hill. The well-earned descent that follows is a gravel shaded mile, followed by flats and downhills to the finish under the great balloon arch on Bridge Street. The sixth mile is downhill, and the whole course is very spectator friendly.

3K Course Description:
The 3k loop begins with a gradual climb from the village center's historic 1890 iron bridge, where everyone lines up for the start. The rest of the run/walk is through neighborhood streets and finishes under the great balloon arch on Bridge Street almost 2 miles later.
