CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - This year's Cooper River Bridge Run was so big that people were sent out in waves to accommodate the more than 40,000 people who participated in the race.

This is expected to the largest crowd to participate in this race since it began on April 2, 1977.

Last year, one of the elite runners set a course record over the Arthur Ravenel bridge and was 10 seconds short of beating the overall race record.
