Some came for the glory.
A handful of devoted, elite competitors ran across the Ravenel Bridge at blazing speed, looking to capture a first place finish in Charleston's signature 10K race. A pack of three runners led the way as the course neared its end down King Street, but last year's champion Shadrack Kipchirchir, a resident of Colorado, pulled away just enough to claim another first place finish.
The first woman to cross the finish line in the 41st annual Bridge Run? That'd be Gotytom Gebrelase of Ethiopia.
For many others though, the Bridge Run was more of a leisurely activity. Many enjoyed it with friends, celebrated the culture of Charleston, or just spent some time acting a little weird. Here's some highlights from the runners of the Holy City's most iconic race.
