Cooper River Bridge Run
Whether you’re running, walking or watching, this springtime 10K running race is a huge event. Almost 40,000 people take part in the race each year, and many more come as spectators. (Tip: the Friday night before the race can be a tough time to get a dinner reservation if you don’t book early.) On Saturday morning, the race starts in Mount Pleasant and finishes downtown, giving everyone a close-up tour from Shem Creek to King Street.
