Bridge the Community is the only event in the Sauk Valley Area which features a 5K and 10K option, with courses that take you along the beautiful Rock River in both Sterling and Rock Falls – crossing the river twice!

 

The event kicks off with a Kids’ Bridge Dash at 8:30 a.m. with a fun run across the 1st Avenue bridge.

 

The 5K& 10K take off at 9:00 a.m., beginning on E. 2nd Street along the Rock Falls riverfront.

 

Come enjoy a morning run and then stick around for the Twin Cities annual Fiesta Days Parade that steps off at noon. This 60+ year old tradition in the Sauk Valley crosses the bridge through both communities with a day full of festivities, food, and family!

 

Make it a day to Bridge the Community!
