Running in Charleston is one of the best activities a visitor can partake in, and a great way to experience the city. When running through downtown you’ll pass hidden alleys, run under the shade of massive Live Oaks, and around Charleston’s confusing, yet beautiful network of centuries-old streets.
Running South of Broad will reveal so much more than driving around the city in your car, not to mention getting the hang of all of our one way streets can force even the most relaxed driver into a mental breakdown, so you might as well jog.
The Ravenel Bridge, which connects downtown Charleston to Mount Pleasant, is another awesome running route to experience the city from a higher perspective. 200 feet above the Cooper River and uphill both ways, the bridge is not only a great workout, you’ll also be blown away by the view (literally...it can be quite windy at the top).
