The Savannah Sports Council has recently reveled the finisher medals for the 2019 Publix Savannah Women’s Half & 5K, slated to take place the weekend of April 5 and 6. This year, each medal features a view of the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist and the iconic Forsyth Park fountain, which marks the finish line of the race course.
The course winds through some of the city’s most lush and beautiful historic squares during peak blooming season, and provides an opportunity for women to travel to Savannah to share a long weekend with girlfriends and family. Finishers in both the 5K and half marathon will receive a medal, and participants who have run all five years of the race will also receive a special legacy medal as well.
2,497 runners and walkers took part in the 2018 race. This year, registration will be limited to 3,000.. Director of the Savannah Sports Council Rob Wells says that in the five years since the Council began hosting the race, it has become a landmark event: “Our route is designed specifically to showcase Savannah’s beauty and history, two of its biggest draws. Since the first year this event has proved to be extremely popular, with 40 states and 10 different countries represented in 2018.”
