In order to guide the attention of the people and Pärnu city authorities towards the banks of the Pärnu River and the need for their reorganization, several well-known townsmen, led by Jüri Jaanson in 2001, organized the Two Bridges Race. NGO Pärnu Two Bridges Club was founded on October 2, 2002 with the aim of organizing sports events and develop good sports tracks. The club is especially well-known for organizing public sports events.
