On April 5th, 2014 Charleston will host its 37th annual Cooper River Bridge Run. Since 1978 the bridge run has grown to be largest organized race in South Carolina. The bridge run was destined to be one of the most fun events you can participate in. In addition to a challenging but beautiful 10k course, which begins in Mount Pleasant and ends downtown, over 30 bands are set to perform after the race. Local craft beer and food is waiting to help you recover at the finish line in Marion Square. It’s no wonder the Bridge Run attracts over 40,0000 participants each year, it’s too much fun to miss out on.
The race is suited for everyone. If you are serious about setting a new PR, and are in it to win it, there is a corral for you, just as there is a corral reserved for those of us who just want to have a great time. Bring your family, team or work friends and support an outstanding cause. Information about the race, registration, and FAQ’s are located at BridgeRun.com. Come join me on April 5th, I’ll be the one dressed as Uncle Sam, most likely walking and cheering everyone else on. I’ll see you at the finish. Like I always say, “There is no shame in saving your energy for the party.”
