 2015 COOPER RIVER BRIDGE RUN SAFETY AND SECURITY 

Safety and security is our top priority.  Together with the help and support of numerous local, state and federal public safety agencies, we have comprehensive plans in place to ensure the safety of our participants, volunteers and spectators.  We would like to share some of the changes you will see this year and ask for your cooperation and support.  


Increased Law Enforcement: There will be an increased law enforcement presence at the Start, along the course and at the Finish.  


Increased Number of Restricted Areas: There will be an increased number of restricted areas at the Start and Finish line areas.  Additional fencing with designated entry and exit points will be in place around the finish line area.  Anyone entering a restricted area with a backpack, bag, purse, etc. will be subject to search.  This year a clear backpack will be distributed along with your race packet material included with you entry fee.  


Leave backpacks or any other unnecessary items at home; please pack light.  Remember, if you don't need it -don't bring it!


See Something, Say Something: Be vigilant.  If you see something suspicious, contact the nearest police office or dial 911 immediately.

You came here to run, but first, you need the fuel to keep you moving!   How do you choose the nights dining pleasures, when there are SO many culinary gems to choose from?   This year’s Taste of the Bridge Run will have your taste buds cheering.   With over 25 participating restaurants, this is a good way for locals and visitors alike to ‘taste’ what Charleston has to offer.  For $15, you can keep it simple with a dish from your favorite restaurant, OR load up with a sample of everything.   This is the perfect way to try new places, without breaking the bank.  Figure out which restaurant you like best, so the next time that pesky question arises “what’s for dinner” you know just the answer.

At Jim ‘N' Nick’s Bar-B-Q we believe the trick to serving up great bar-b-q is to avoid the tricks altogether. No freezers. No short-cuts. Just slow-smoked Southern goodness, the way it ought to be done. Our bar-B-Q is slow-smoked for up to 20 hours over low-heat hickory coals to coax out that original smoky flavor. And everything is made from scratch. Yes, everything.

From our hand-pattied, fresh-ground burgers to the croutons that top our salads, even the pie crusts are flour and rolling pin fresh, because we know that delicious is in the details. And at Jim ‘N Nick’s the Southern goodness is always served with genuine and gracious hospitality, built on a sincere appreciation for our guests and our community. Join us for dine-In, drive-thru, take-home, private dining or let our catering team bring the goodness to you.
