CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - This Cooper River Bridge Run and Walk in Charleston will mark the last few minutes of the single life for 2 of the estimated 40,000 participants.
Andy Cook and Tina Berwanger plan to run Saturday's race in custom-designed wedding attire then tie the knot in Charleston's Marion Square before family, friends and thousands of their fellow runners.
The couple won a contest sponsored by Carnival Cruise Lines, which last year based its Carnival Fantasy permanently in Charleston.
The race, now in its 34th year, is 1 of the ten largest 10-K races in the nation. The course takes runners from Mount Pleasant, across the sweeping Ravenel Bridge and into the streets of downtown Charleston.
