Started in 1985, it was not held in certain years, last run in 2006, and eventually cancelled due to lack of funding.

The successor to the Governor's Bay Bridge Run is the annual Across the Bay 10K, which started in November 2014. The sixth largest 10K in the United States, it next will be held November 4, 2018. Also in November, various "turkey trot" races are scheduled for Thanksgiving Day or after.
