On a cool Saturday morning, 50,000 of my closest friends and I shivered together, awaiting the start of the annual Cooper River Bridge Run. Started in 1978, the Cooper River Bridge Run has grown from a few hundred runners to one of the 10 biggest races in America. I have run this race several times, both while in college in Charleston over a decade ago as well as the past few years. The following is a review of this race and perhaps a few tips for those considering running it in the future.
The temperature is usually in the 40′s at start time, give or take 10 degrees. It will be chilly while standing around but, actually, perfect weather for running. The starting corrals are on Coleman Blvd. in Mt Pleasant.

First tip: If you want to run this

There will be runners within arms length of you in all directions at all times for the entire race. It’s not so bad as long as you don’t fall down. If your shoes comes untied, as mine did this year, I advise you to get to the side quickly and deal with it. If you stop in the center of the

Making your way out of Mt Pleasant, the Ravenel Bridge comes into view. It is a strikingly beautiful bridge and much smoother and easier to run than its’ predecessors. There is only one hill in this bridge, the others had two. Once you hit the approach to the bridge, you’ll need to use some caution as a lot of people start to walk when they hit the hill. Making your way up the bridge ramp, you will start to

Sprint. Congratulations, you got over it!
The post race area is an experience unto itself. It’s crammed full of spectators, runners, vendors and just about everyone in Charleston. It’s even more crowded than the race itself, if that’s possible. Water and fruit stations are everywhere. This is a very well run and well supported race. It’s amazing that so many people can be involved in the race and things still maintain a air of organization.
In years past, packet pickup has been a nightmare. The Gaillard Auditorium is a decent sized venue, but when so many people rush it at once, it quickly becomes unmanageable. This year, they had a tent set up outside to get your number and then you proceeded to get your other items.
