The Cooper River Bridge Run is a highly anticipated annual 10K race that takes place every spring in Charleston, South Carolina. The event has been a Charleston tradition since 1978, attracting thousands of participants worldwide. The race is considered one of the top 10K races in the world, and it’s easy to see why.

The Cooper River Bridge Run course starts in Mount Pleasant and goes over the iconic Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, which spans the Cooper River. The bridge is the third longest cable-stayed bridge in the Western Hemisphere, and it offers breathtaking views of the Charleston Harbor and the city skyline. Participants get to experience the thrill of crossing the bridge, which is closed to traffic during the race, and enjoy the beautiful scenery along the way. There is also a Cooper River Bridge Run Wheelchair Division that abides by WTFUSA rules and follows the point-to-point 10K from Mt. Pleasant to downtown Charleston.

The Cooper River Bridge Run is not just a race; it’s a community event that brings people from all walks of life together. The race promotes education for a healthy lifestyle and the benefits of physical fitness and camaraderie. It’s a great way to experience Charleston’s vibrant culture and spirit. Participants can enjoy live music, food, and drinks at the finish line festival and explore the city’s historic downtown area and many attractions. Overall, the Cooper River Bridge Run is a fun and challenging event that generates a community spirit, celebrates Charleston’s beauty and diversity, and inspires people to live a healthy and active lifestyle.
