The Georgia Coastal 155
On April 17, 2015 at 12:00 pm, four runners from Savannah will embark on a 48 hour 155 mile running journey following the Coastal Georgia Greenway from St. Mary’s,Ga. and culminating in Hutchinson Island, Ga. on April 19th.
Why? Because it’s there, – the Georgia Coastal Greenway, that is.
This run is a personal journey with friends and, with several ambitions…
- As a fundraiser for Liam’s Land, a 501c3 that funds research for finding what causes lymphatic malformations with hopes of finding a cure for this ailment.
- Bringing awareness to the magnificent project called the Georgia Coastal Greenway which aims to connect and bridge a series of trails and paths up the coast of Georgia.
- Possibly creating a multi-day foot race up the CGG and ending it at the Trade Center on Hutchinson Island.
- Lastly, because the CGG is there and why not be the first group of runners to run it!
This run will take us across six counties, 9 cities and 15 jurisdictions. The cities we’ll run in and through are St. Mary’s, Woodbine, Kingsland, Brunswick, Darien, Riceboro, Midway, Richmond Hill and Savannah.
The CGG is not yet complete but I believe that once it is it’s gonna have a huge positive impact economically because of the recreational opportunities it will provide.
Currently, 80% of the course is road and on US 17 and State Route 99.
The runners are all experienced ultra runners but this experience will mark their longest run to date.
The runners are…
- John Durant
- Jason Edenfield
- Karl Joseph
- Dan Hernandez
