    This race was not overwhelmingly amazing but would do it again if in the area. We did race day packet pickup and that went smoothly. There was beer and a band at the finish. The only negative was there was no shirt. I am planning on making a quilt out of my 50 state race shirts so had this been my first GA race I would have been bummed. However, if you have plenty of race shirts already than it is a positive that they gave out a duffle bag instead. Savannah itself was awesome with tons to do. We walked another 9 miles that afternoon seeing all the sites. Great town to visit!!!

    Love this race every year, it was 1st time with this course (new this year). Water stops are minimal so make sure you bring something (especially for the half). It is always a beautiful city to run in.

    2017 was my first year running the Savannah Women’s Half Marathon races, but hopefully it won’t be the last. This race is in its third year and did a great job. I hoped to run the half, but due to an injury had to switch to the 5K in the weeks before the race. I like that two distances are offered because that makes this race perfect no matter what your goals are. Both races included the same swag and finisher’s medals.

    This was my first women’s race and a great experience. The race environment was very supportive of ladies of all ability levels. Men could also run, but were not eligible for awards. The men who did run were very respectful and the ladies were respectful back. At one point on the half course, there is an out and back section and the runners cheer for each other.

    The course is beautiful and perfect for your first race or for a PR. It’s flat and fast and runs through some beautiful areas of Savannah. The finish is in Forsyth Park in front of the fountain, which is a perfect backdrop for photos- and a fun place to hang out post race.

    The Savannah Women’s Half would be perfect for a girl’s weekend in Savannah, or if you’re a local looking for a well-organized race.

    Great Review! It's a bummer to hear you had to switch to the 5k because of an injury. Hopefully you'll be able to do the Half next year!
