8-Mile Bridge Challenge

2021 Details

The 8-miles Bridge Walk Challenge has been canceled this year. We will try to hold this event in 2022.


To celebrate the completion of the Renva W. Knowles Bridge and the ongoing expansion of the Huckleberry Trail, Christiansburg Parks and Recreation hosts a walk on the trail each September. Participants meet at the Recreation Center before being bused to the Blacksburg Library. From there, participants walk the length of the trail, crossing the Renva W. Knowles Bridge and ending at the Recreation Center.      

The event is free to participants. The walk is limited to the first 60 participants, each participant will receive a shirt.
