Bridging the Gap Women’s 10 Mile
October 7 @ 8:00 am – 12:00 pm
“Bridging the Gap” is a metaphor for the gap women face. It’s a pay gap. It’s an accessibility gap. It’s many other gaps, and these gaps have consequences.
This event is an opportunity to bridge those gaps. Together, Duluth Running Company and the Entrepreneur Fund’s Women’s Business Alliance program, we’ve created the Bridging the Gap Fund. A portion of the proceeds from the event go to this fund and provide women with resources to build and grow sustainable businesses.
The race course encompasses some of Duluth’s most attractive features and incorporates them into one amazing experience. The race starts high above the big lake at Hawks Ridge which provides expansive Lake Superior views. Athletes travel along Skyline Parkway, an iconic Duluth thoroughfare, taking in the beautiful fall colors. Participants then “Bridge the Gap” on Seven Bridges Road with a beautiful descent that winds across Amity Creek before arriving at the Lake Superior shoreline. The second half of the course runs along the Lakewalk to the finish line at Leif Erickson Park near downtown Duluth.
The Bridging the Gap Women’s 10 Mile has raised over $15,000 in the first two years of the event. This year our goal is to match this amount! Help us reach this goal by donating or becoming a fundraiser. The Entrepreneur Fund will be matching all fundraisers that raise a minimum of $300, doubling those donations!
