If it’s not already there, please make sure this year’s Savannah Rock ‘n Roll Marathon and Half Marathon is on your radar screen again. After not happening in 2020 due to the pandemic, this outstanding event will return to Savannah for the weekend of November 5-7, 2021.
Rob Wells, director of the Savannah Sports Council and Joseph Marinelli, president of Visit Savannah, spoke with executives from the marathon staff last week, and it’s “all systems go” for this year’s event. They are currently working to produce other similar-type race events around the country and are processing through the most current and necessary protocols for races like this.
Early registration numbers are strong and growing, and we are expecting a large overall participation, with big hopes that they will surpass the numbers from 2018 and 2019.
We will keep you informed via the Chamber’s e-newsletter but for now, start thinking about how we will welcome back this terrific event for our community and the participants that visit from around the globe!
