We want to send a special Thank You to all who made the 2014 Kids Run and Wonderfest a HUGE success this year! Without our awesome volunteers and participants, we would not have been able to do it without you.

Special thanks to Christine Osborne, of Wonder Works who always infuses her special brand of "magic" to make the Kids Run & Wonderfest so special for everyone! This year, her team developed field trip race competitions for more than 700 Charleston School District children!

This year was bigger than ever with so many youngsters engaged in fun and learning about the importance of the healthy lifestyle. All the young racers had hearts full of determination and spirit.

We can't wait until the Kids Run and Wonderfest next year on March 27th, 2015!

We were so pleased this morning when we were notified that the Cooper River Bridge Run was listed as one of the "14 Spring Races All Runners Should Try" on USATODAY.com!

With Charleston being such a beautiful and historic town and the Cooper River Bridge Run's strong heritage, it's no surprise our wonderful 10k has made the list!

USA Today writer, Katie Rosenbrock, says of of the Cooper River Bridge Run:


"What better way to kick off the spring running season than with a 10K race that will lead you across the stunning Cooper River Bridge and straight into the heart of South Carolina's oldest and arguably most charming city? Dating back to 1978, the Cooper River Bridge Run is a race rich with culture and history, much like the city it's held in. Not only is it one of the largest and most storied 10K races in America, but it's also one of the most musical. Last year organizers set up live music at every quarter-mile mark (yes, they even had bands on the bridge), making it the race with the most music per square mile in the entire country.

Last year CRBR sprinted forward with This Is Noteworthy to host the only curated music run in the US.  25 bands were strategically placed every .2 of a mile so runners didn't need headphones and iPods. That's right, the music was live, never stopped, reflected the terrain, and kept their pacing on track.

Runners loved it! Bands loved it! The Community loved it!

Musicians loved it so much that 1800 of them, yes 1800 different groups, from the all over the southeast, are vying for the coveted 30 spots. Bands will be announced via the CRBR website on Jan 15. Check out their pics, bios, and music ahead of time.

But that's not all, a special 2014 CRBR "Run With Me, Vol 2" compilation cd will be available, so pinpoint your favorite band, and find them on the course. Send them a note, get interactive with them! Find us at the expo.

And we bring you one more special musical treat this year. Yogapop. All 30 bands featured during the race, will also be featured at a special interactive yoga/ music event on the Thursday night before the race. You 'aint seen nothing yet! Yogapop….http://www.yogapop.org
