The Charleston Battery has teamed up with the Cooper River Bridge Run and for a third year the Battery players will be assisting at the start of the race on Saturday morning. The players will then run as a team in the 10K race.
The Cooper River Bridge Run begins in Mount Pleasant, crosses the Cooper River to Charleston and finishes at Marion Square. In 2012 the race was won by Solomon Deksisa of Ethiopia in a time of 29 minutes and 37 seconds; the race has been run annually in Charleston since 1978.
Following the race the Battery players will attend a post-race party at Molly Darcy’s Traditional Irish Pub and Grill at 235 East Bay Street, Downtown Charleston.
