The Packet Pick-Up for the Cooper River Bridge Run has moved right next door to the North Charleston Coliseum.
This year, participants will flock to the the Charleston Area Convention Center on Apr. 3 and Apr. 4 to pick up their packet, which includes the bib number, a computer timing chip, event information and other free offers from sponsors.
Runners and walkers can pick up their packets from noon to 8 p.m. at the convention center at 5001 Coliseum Drive on Thursday, Apr. 3. On Friday, participants can stop by from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Unless you've had your packet mailed to you, you will need to pick it up on either of those days.
For downtown residents without a vehicle, you can catch a shuttle from the downtown visitor's center at Ann Street every 15 minutes during the aforementioned times.
