Cooper River Bridge Run | Safety & Security

Race Day Is Saturday April 5, 2025


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 lines. 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 your 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 officer or dial 911 immediately.


Safety & Security are our priority – The American Red Cross Safe and Well is a way for people affected by a disaster to enter information regarding their welfare so family and friends can check their status. Because people self-register, the Red Cross cannot verify the information and is not responsible for any inaccuracies.
