Holy cow, we are just one week out from Rock n Roll Savannah! Although my training was less than stellar, I am feeling ok going into race week.
In my last Rock n Roll Savannah post, I told you all about the reasons why this race will be special to me. I also went over all the different race distance options. This time I thought I would talk about the course, live entertainment and area attractions.
Overall, the course looks to be relatively flat. The most elevation gain is 70 feet. Hills around 4.5 and 11 miles approximately. It starts in front of city hall and winds through historic downtown Savannah. Finish line festival in Forsyth Park, which is full of southern charm.
Check out this video which shows highlights along the course:
Of course, Rock n Roll races are always known for terrific live music on the course. They are also known for the post race concerts. This year’s headliner is Fitz & The Tantrums, with hits “Out of My League” , "The Walker" and “Handclap”. Since one of the friends I’m doing this race with is walking it, I think I may actually still be around to see the headliner!
The expo takes place on Thursday and Friday at the Convention Center. We are going to park in downtown Savannah and take the free Savannah Belles water ferry across to the expo! Where else can you do that? I’m looking forward to just sightseeing along the river in general. And the historic homes and uniquely southern architecture.
My top 5 to do’s in Savannah:
Weather is looking to be fabulous!!! Low of 60 and high of 80 and sunny. I'm excited to do this race with friends, as well as meet up with 2 of my fellow BibRave Pros!
