Nothing is wrong with the bridge, it will just be filled with a lot of foot traffic.

The Sunshine Skyway Bridge will be partially closed to vehicles Sunday while running enthusiasts take on the challenge of running across the bridge as part of a 10k race. The northbound lanes of the Skyway will be closed between 3:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. for the Skyway 10k race.

The rest area and piers on Interstate 275 northbound around the bridge will also be closed during those hours.

The second annual Skyway 10k race takes place Sunday and will see 8,000 runners cross the bridge. The race benefits the Armed Forces Families Foundation, which raises funds to help the families of service men and women.

I support the cause but I do not know if I could run across the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, it is already difficult for me to drive on the bridge, especially on a windy day.

In 2018, the Skyway 10k raised $560,000 for the Armed Forces Families Foundation.
