My wife is a city girl. She loves weekend trips to cities to soak up the buzz and the night-life. Last year we spent a few days in Savannah, GA and it did not disappoint. It’s a beautiful city, full of character and life.

I was pretty pumped when the opportunity to race the Savannah Bridge Run came along. Unfortunately it turned out that the dates would not work for me so I will not be running it this year. Instead I am telling YOU why you should run it!

The Race

Before I share more about the city of Savannah, let me tell you about the race. It is known as “the South’s toughest bridge run”. It is also named one of America’s top 20 races under 10 miles by The BibRave 100.

There are 3 race events to choose from, all which run over the bridge and through scenic downtown Savannah – 5K (once over the bridge), 10K (twice over the bridge) and DOUBLE PUMP (three times over the bridge).

Dress It Up

Races with costume contests can be so much fun. I’ve never actually taken part in one, but always wish I had when I see the efforts some people go to. It always make me smile — especially the really bad ideas. The race awards cash prizes for both group and individual entries.

Post Run Party

There’s one thing I know, Savannah knows how to party. After the race, participants will enjoy live music, beer and food in Franklin Square, downtown Savannah.

The City

If you can, I encourage you to spend 2-3 days in Savannah over race weekend. It’s an amazing location with lots to explore. Most of which can easily be explored on foot (or a recovery run).

We just loved the river side streets and cobblestone. It is packed full of little art shops, restaurants, coffee shops, gift shops, etc. The coffee and desert shops that open late are amazing — I can totally recommend Lulu’s Chocolate Bar. There is lots of good food and treats to choose from while you’re there.
