    Hi Dan,
    I’m considering running the Savannah Rails to Trails 50K next month. It would be my first ultra. However, I have run 50+ marathons so far. A couple of questions:
    1. Are there still spaces in the 50K?
    2. Would there be any after race showers available for us out of state folks (perhaps at a local YMCA or other place)?
    3. Are the race shirts cotton (shrinkable) or tech (non-shrinkable)? I would need a different size depending upon the material.
    4. I understand that there will be 2 aid stations along the race; how far apart are they?

    I appreciate your reply in advance.

    Thanks,
    Fred Ostrowski (NC)

      Hi Fred!
      Thank you for contacting me.
      Here are the answers to your questions:
      1. Are there still spaces in the 50k: Yes. There are more than several.
      2. Would there be any after race showers available for us out of state folks (perhaps at a local YMCA or other place)? Unfortunately, no. There is a restroom with running water where the start/finish line of the race is at. There is a YMCA on Tybee Island (about 3 miles from the start of the race) and another on Whitemarsh Island (Island’s Ymca) about 7 miles away.
      3. The race shirts are long sleeve tech shirts.
      4. I understand that there will be 2 aid station along the race; how far apart are they? They are three miles apart. One is at the start/finish. The other is at the McQueen’s Island trailhead just outside of Fort Pulaski.

      Thank you for your questions and interest in the Savannah RTT Ultra. I hope you can make the race!
      Happy Holidays!

      Dan
