The 13.6 mile race will begin at the Lake Barkley Bridge and travel west on a paved trail for 3.6 miles. The course then becomes a winding, woodland path with packed gravel for 8.2 miles. It then becomes paved again for the final 1.8 miles to the finish on the west side of Eggner's Ferry Bridge at Kentucky Lake. Moderate elevation changes will be evident through the woodland trail.

The U.S. Forest Service has canceled all sanctioned events on the LBL schedule for the fall of 2020 due to COVID-19. We felt like we had the plans and procedures in place to offer a safe race but obviously this is beyond our control. We will be offering a virtual race to those that wish to participate. The LBL area is still open so we encourage all those who can to run the actual Bridge to Bridge course. For those that can't run the actual course, you can run 22K (13.67 miles) anywhere you choose. Participants in the virutal race will receive a race t-shirt and finishers medal.
