Weekend to be high and mighty
It is the largest race across the Mississippi River in the nation. The 5K race will span the Hale Boggs Bridge and bring a picturesque view of the river and surroundings to some 1,500 competitors trying to win a race.
This has been one of the most popular events on the calendar in St. Charles during the years. Those who love to run have an opportunity here to enjoy the spectacular scenery while trying to win a medallion.
The bridge run travels a height greater than that of the pyramids of Egypt and the Statue of Liberty. At the top, one can get a view of the greatest river in the world as it bisects our nation.
The festival that follows at the West Bank Bridge Park will give runners and others the opportunity to review their performances and comment on the vistas while they refresh with food and music.
It is one of the events that makes St. Charles such a unique parish in which to live. From our wonderful wetlands to our rolling river, it is truly a water wonderland.
And we are fortunate to enjoy it all at events such as the United Way bridge run.
