SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — The Enmarket Savannah Bridge Run is happening today! An estimated 4,500 racers will be crossing the Talmadge Bridge starting at 8 a.m.

Just 196 feet above the Savannah River, participants will run in the 5K, 10K, or ‘double pump.’

Joining in on the trek is WSAV’s Ben Katko! If you see him, feel free to shout ‘Run, Ben, Run!’ (no worries, you can blame us).

Keep in mind, parking and traffic may be affected by the race. The Oglethorpe Avenue on-ramp to the bridge will be closed from 8 a.m. until around noon.

Other roads will close as needed for runners to pass. Details here:
