The Clagett Regatta Team will partake in the 2020 Pell Bridge Run!  

Q: What is it? 

A: The annual Pell Bridge Run (PBR). Each year members of The Clagett team get together, wake up before the sun rises and walk or run across Newport's iconic Pell Bridge to raise money for disabled sailors. 2020 will be The Clagett team's fourth year participating in PBR. Click here for more information on the 2020 event.

Q: Who does this benefit?

A: The Pell Bridge Run directly benefits Clagett sailors through donations made via CrowdRise. Click here to visit The Clagett's 2019 CrowdRise page. The 2020 CrowdRise fundraising page will be posted shortly.

When you sign up as part of The Clagett Team, a portion of your entry fee will be received by The Clagett. In 2018 and 2019, The Clagett was one of the official recipients of the Rhode ISland Turnpike and Bridge Authority Foundation's grant program.

This is the only time individuals are allowed on Newport's iconic Pell Bridge.

Q: When is this event? 

A: The morning of October 18, 2020. For members of The Clagett Team the event is followed by a breakfast reception.

Q: Why should I join? 

A: Participating as a member of The Clagett team is a perfect way to join The Clagett family and support our mission and vision! It is also a wonderful way to stay in touch and active during the fall. 

The Clagett Pell Bridge Run Team is growing constantly and we would love to add members!
