Well, the clock is ticking, and the time is right to book one of our SC vacation rentals for what will be the 40th running of the Cooper River Bridge Run.

It’s set for Saturday, April 1st, and the 40th annual installment of this beloved running/walking 10K event is shaping up to be a pretty big deal.  FYI, it’s the third largest 10K in the country.

Yesterday kicked off a countdown of sorts - the “40 Days of Bridge Run.” Race organizers have planned Bridge Run-related events for every day leading up to the race. Yesterday saw Bridge Run poster design winner Tate Nation signing posters in Mount Pleasant.

40 Days of Bridge Run events include:
• 40 Days of Bridge Run raffle, with a different cool prize given away each day from now until race day;
• CRBR Trivia at O’Brion’s Pub;
• Wine & Design Event (Paint the Bridge);
• BlueSky Endurance Run to help prep for the race;
• Special exhibit at the Charleston Museum commemorating 40 years of the Bridge Run (starts March 1st);
• Battle of the Bands on the Yorktown (March 2nd);
• A Cooper River Bridge Kids’ Run (March 31st).

Here’s more on the story, with quotes from some CRBR folks.

It’s also good to get registered ASAP since as of yesterday, they already had 29,000 people signed up.

Here’s the official website where you can sign up and get all the particulars:

As many of you know, a Charleston beach house makes a great home base for the Bridge Run. That particular weekend is traditionally one of the most popular single weekends for SC vacation rentals - both our Isle of Palms vacation rentals and our Folly Beach house rentals Charleston SC. After all, the weekend also marks the kickoff of the Family Circle Cup tennis tournament, now known as the Volvo Car Open, as well as the Flowertown Festival.

Many long-time guests of our luxury beach house rentals SC know to call way in advance to book their favorite luxury house on Isle of Palms or Folly Beach house Charleston for that weekend. If you haven’t reserved one yet, you’d best call EP as soon as you can.

Get ready to bid… it’s the Spoleto Festival USA Auction near our SC vacation rentals

It’s not too early to plan for what is one of the best times to be in the Charleston area… the end of May through early June, also known as Spoleto time. Tickets for the festival are on sale now, and shows and performances are going fast, not to mention bookings in our beach rentals Charleston.

The festival takes place this year from May 26th through June 11th. Staying in one of our rental homes South Carolina is great way to experience the festival. Events take place in countless venues across the area (centered on the historic district) and are convenient to all our SC vacation rentals.

If you happen to be here now in one of our luxury beach house rentals SC, you’re in luck. This coming Friday night, February 24th at 6;30 p.m. is the first big Spoleto party of the year. It’s the annual live auction, and it looks to be an exciting evening with lots of terrific items up for bid, like private dinners with famous Charleston chefs and spectacular custom jewelry.

The evening will include cocktails, dinner, music and the exciting live auction in a great venue - The Cedar Room at the Cigar Factory.  Click HERE to buy tickets.

If you aren’t here now in one of our Isle of Palms luxury rentals, don’t fret - you can still take part. They also are offering an online auction with a slew of great stuff, and it’s going on from now until March 5th.  Many of the items would dovetail perfectly with your stay in one of our Isle of Palms luxury rentals - for example, private dinners or festival finale packages for everyone in your beach house Charleston.
