The Charleston James Island Connector Run route starts and finishes on Bennett St. close to Ashley Ave. This is the ONLY point-to-point 5K in the state, and if you want a personal record, it’s a FAST course. The 10K run starts at Cannon Park near the corner of Ashley Ave. … MORE

    Supports a very worthy cause here in Charleston, which motivates many people to participate. Only time when the bridge is closed for running, and provides great views. For the 10K, its over the bridge with its 3 hills and back again. There is a 5K option for those who only want to run it once.

    The JICR is one of the most beautiful but most difficult courses in Charleston. The views are incredible and the race production improves each year. They have recently started giving finisher’s medals, which is a nice touch for a 5K and 10K. The post race party has lots of refreshments as well as free beer, and the age group awards are very nice each year. The overall winners receive money which brings a lot of faster runners out.

    It is harder than the Cooper River Bridge run, course wise, because the course has multiple inclines and is all run on the connector, which is a hard surface. However, the race is open to all, including stroller runners, those with dogs, and it is walker friendly. The 5K is point to point with a bus that returns you to the start, and the 10K is an out and back.

    I would highly recommend this race because it is one of my favorites in Charleston. It’s not a PR course, but it is beautiful and a great race to use for training if you have a hilly race coming up.
