Red Brick Run FAQs

What is the terrain of the race route?

Runners and walkers of the 2 mile course will see a combination of brick streets and pavement on their route.  The route is mostly flat but there is one small hill at the halfway point.

5k runners will also see a combination of brick and pavement.  This route has one long gradual hill towards the end.  This route does have some time on a state highway, which is monitored by the Taylor County Sheriff's Department during the race.

The 10k route includes all of the 5k route but also goes in to the country on gravel roads.  There is a hilly section on the gravel section of this race.

Are strollers allowed?  Are bikes allowed?

Strollers are permissible for walkers or runners.  No bicycles, please.

Are restroom facilities available?

Restrooms will be available in City Hall, across the street from the Courthouse.

The registration fee includes the entry to the race as well as a race t-shirt for the first 150 registrations.  All proceeds from this event benefit the Bedford Area Chamber.
