Savannah Rails to Trails 50k 2015
The 3rd Savannah Rails to Trails Ultra is coming back in 2015!
The race will take place at the same location as last year, Ft. Pulaski and the Rails to Trails in Savannah, on Saturday, January 10, 2015.
This year's course spans a 7.75 mile loop that begins in Ft. Pulaski, takes you around Cockspur Island and then leaves the Ft. behind and enters the McQueen's Island trail where you will follow it for almost three miles before hitting the turn around and heading back to the old historically significant fort.
So, kick off 2015 the right way by cranking out a 50k or 25k! If these distances are more than you care to crank out grab three friends and run the 50k relay!
The McQueen's Island Historical Trail (RTT) and Ft. Pulaski are two very beautiful locations to run! Once you run Savannah's Rails to Trails you'll see why we so desire to save it!.
Awards will be given to the First Place Female and Male of each race: 25k, 50k.
Medals will be given to All Finishers of the 50k, 25k, 50k relay races. We make one request though, - Run Hard, Run Strong for which ever event you go after!
Please join Run 4 a Reason and help save our Rails to Trails.
