Light on light off

There is a bridge that is 20 feet long. You need to cross it. There is a light that turns on every 5 minutes for 2 minutes. It takes 10 minutes to cross the whole bridge. At each end of the bridge, there are two men guarding with guns. If they see you trying to cross when the light goes on, they will tell you to go back. If you don't, they will shoot you and you will die. How can you cross the bridge without getting killed?

Okay so if the light comes on every 5 minutes and stays on for 2 minutes then that gives me 5 minutes in the dark with a 2 minute delay. So I would walk the bridge for 5 miutes then stop for 2 minutes because of the light. So it would take me 14 minutes to cross the bridge I think telling me how long the bridge is and how long it would take to cross it is just a distraction. But then realisticly, no matter if I walk the bridge while the light is off once it turns on the guards will see me. So theres no way to cross it, but then again you can run 20 feet in 5 minutes but seeing how it would take 10 minutes to get across that wouldn't work.

You don't cross the bridge, you go under.
