The 31st annual Cooper River Bridge Run will be next weekend – April 5th. The Bridge Run is one of the biggest annual events in Charleston, and it’s one of the major races in the southeast. Almost 40,000 participants are expected to come out this year for the run. It’s a 10K run/walk starting in Mt. Pleasant and going over the Ravenel Bridge into downtown Charleston. There is also a separate kids’ run that will be held the day before the big race. Distances for kids will range from 25 yards up to a mile, depending on age. Too bad there’s not a kids’ run for the rest of us!
