Established in 1998, Ford Island Bridge Run has been one of the largest 10K races on Oahu.  The first run on April 4, 1998 was the first public event to take place on the Admiral Clarey Bridge before it officially opened on April 15, 1998. The 4,672’ long, low profile pontoon bridge replaced a ferry service to become a connection between Ford Island and Aiea.


The race route takes you to Ford Island, a designated National Historic Landmark. Ford Island was at the center of the attack on Pearl Harbor and today is a home to the Pacific Warfighting Center, the Pacific Aviation Museum, NOAA’s Pacific Tsunami Warning Center, and several memorials.


The participants have a unique opportunity to see scenic and historical sights along the route. Crossing the bridge, runners can glimpse both the somber USS Arizona Memorial and the majestic Battleship Missouri Memorial. On Ford Island, the runners pass USS Oklahoma memorial, skirt the former runway and have a view of the former control tower as well as USS Utah Memorial.


As they cross the finish line at Richardson Field, all finishers* receive a medal as well as a commemorative T-shirt with a unique design, specifically created for the race.


*Recommended to sign up before the race day to avoid late fee.
