It is with great disappointment, that we announce the cancellation of the in-person 2021 Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon & 5K, originally planned to take place on October 9, 2021. City of Savannah leadership has decided to not yet permit events with over 500 participants inside city limits. We were prepared to produce a safe race and had over 1,400 pre-registrations and expected more than 2,000 participants by race day.


The cancellation of this event is difficult, as we recognize that preparing for a race requires a tremendous amount of training, time and energy for each runner, staff, and volunteer. We value your interest in the in the event and hope you continue to have an interest in supporting the event in the future. All registered participants will be receiving an email from HAKU with their options and next steps which includes completing the race virtually. If you are registered for the 2021 event and have not received your options email from HAKU, please contact for more information. 


We are grateful for our generous partners, Publix, BODYARMOR, Coca-Cola, WJCL News, the U.S. Coast Guard, and Savannah Magazine for their continuous support during this difficult time.


Also, we would like to thank you again for your support, and we look forward to running together in the future.

What people are saying

Kristin - Sinking Spring, PA

The atmosphere before, during and after the race is always so fun. You can’t not love the southern hospitality too! Plus the finisher medal you get at the end makes it all worth it!

LatisA - Claxton, GA

The course is amazing, the water stations are well staffed, and the energy is contagious.  This race has become a girl’s weekend for my daughter and I, and we look forward to it every year!

Kristina - Gainsville, FL

You can be the fastest runner or the slowest walker and it’s just as fun! There is so much effort the event organizers put into making it an amazing experience for everyone!
