RUNNERS take off from Ironwood's Depot Park to start the Bridges and Bluffs half marathon and two-mile run on Saturday morning. Dustin Filippini, who organized the event said it was nice to return to an in-person race. The annual race was held virtually last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The race attracted runners of all ages. Runners also had to option to participate in the half marathon or two-mile race virtually. Those who wanted to support the race without participating were able to sign up for the Couch Potato Race and make a donation.
