Cooper River Bridge Run

Cooper River Bridge Run

What could be more motivating than 40,000 people running with you? Maybe it’s having American Idol blues-rock singer Taylor Hicks and two dozen other performers serenade you; competing for a $10,000 prize for the top male and female runners; or for the philanthropically-minded, knowing proceeds benefit 15 different charities. Sounds like you have plenty of reasons to achieve your personal best in the country’s third-biggest 10K. Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, Coleman Blvd., Mount Pleasant. Saturday, 8am. $55. (843)856-1949, www.bridgerun.com
