Climb the Hill for Bridges 5K

  • St. Paul's School 11152 Falls Road Brooklandville, MD (map)

Online registration is now closed. Registration is available onsite on race day beginning at 5PM.

Climb the Hill for Bridges is a 5k and 1 mile fun run on the campus of St. Paul's School benefiting Bridges. This 5k run is held in July and is an adaptation of the St. Paul's School cross-country course, including a run up the Falls Road Hill. It's one of the toughest but most fun courses around, especially on a beautiful summer night.

Bridges is a great cause committed to two things:
-The long term success of motivated Baltimore City Youth
-Life changing volunteer opportunities for independent school students

The Program has sites at St. Paul's School (est. 1993) and at Gilman School (est. 2014).



1 Mile is Free

Bridges recruits motivated third grade students from nine Baltimore City Public Schools and provides a nine-year long program that helps them find success in school, become well-rounded people, and prepare for college and career. It currently works with 203 youth ages 9-18 via its sites at St. Paul’s School and at Gilman School.
