Written By Kimberly Stroh, SWH Ambassador

The Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon & 5k is quickly approaching it’s fifth anniversary race weekend. While it’s always been a favorite of mine, it’s grown to be one of the most popular races in the southeast. This event has everything you need for an amazing girl’s getaway. Check out these 5 reasons to run the Savannah Women’s Half & 5k, then don’t forget to register for this year’s April 6th, 2019 race!

Run Through One Of America’s Most Beautiful Cities

Imagine running through streets lined with gigantic southern oak trees, draped with spanish moss, while your eyes catch the architecture of historic Savannah, Georgia. It’s clear why Savannah was voted one of the ‘best places to travel in 2019’ by the NBC Today Show. Every mile offers natural beauty that can only be found in this enchanting city. As a bonus, Savannah is every runner’s dream because it’s truly flat.

Plan An Unforgettable Girl’s Weekend

This race weekend is the perfect opportunity to grab your girlfriends and celebrate friendship with southern style. From coastal cuisine to haunted tours, there’s plenty of Savannah sightseeingopportunities. The premiere shopping on Broughton Street offers the perfect post-race leisurely stroll and there are plenty of spots to toast to crossing that finish line.

Join Us For The Swag

There’s no shame in signing up for a race because you love the swag. We’re known for beautiful finisher medals and an awesome race bag. For 2019, runners receive a beautiful round duffle bag that’ll definitely become your favorite new gym bag. It’s included with your registration fee!

Enjoy The Best Post-Race Party

Regardless of running the half marathon or 5k, your race registration is your ticket to one of the best post-race parties. Have a drink, and relish in the moment, at the finish line, in the scenic Forsyth Park. The party offers live music, free beer from Michelob Ultra and mimosas from Barefoot Wine and Publix orange juice. It’s all about celebrating your accomplishments and grabbing that Insta-worthy shot for #MedalMonday.

Cap Off Your Weekend With Yoga on the Square

I love that the Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon & 5k is an all-encompassing weekend of events. Grab your Running BFF and head to Ellis Square for post-race yoga. It’s an awesome way to cap off an exciting weekend, unwind and let your body recover. All runners are invited to Sunday morning yoga - it’s also included in your registration fee and it’s a great send off to your unforgettable weekend.
