Sites, sweat and songs of the Savannah Marathon

Game faces

Ready to rock

Approximately 17,000 from all 50 states attended the Rock – n – Roll Savannah Marathon

The beat was on as the Ellis brothers and fellow warriors stomped down the streets of Savannah to “Just Dance” by Lady Gaga.  The Rock – n – Roll Savannah Marathon was in full force on November 3rd as runners whipped through the Spanish moss of the live oaks lining the roads and squares.

Music echoed every mile marker to energize the die-hard athletes to reach the end of the journey. The highlight for many marathon participants was the looping through the cheers and cadence tunes of the Savannah State University stadium.  Savannah College of Art  and Design (SCAD) drumline forced a jiggle in the pace of the course in the streets.

But the party started at the Forsythe Park finish line with faces of exhaustion
and elation.  Adelitas Way played on the big stage as brew flowed through the crowd of jubilant athletes.

Commerce hummed as runners crowded the shops, pubs, and eateries. Savannah is an elevated city preserved in history with views of the Savannah River.

Moon River Brewery, the city’s only micro-brewery, supplied beer to carry to the river to watch tug boats, freighters, and ferries. We climbed the slate steps to the Pirate’s House for awesome grub of mouth-watering steaks and
succulent scallops.

The Pirate’s House restaurant was built in 1754

Conversation after the race was focused on data as the dazed and confused
brothers reminisced and planned for their next race. There was buzz about the 2013 Ironman World Championship, a combination of  a 2.5 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and a marathon in Hawaii.
What are your favorite cities for running events?

Mission accomplished with personal records for both brothers: 4:12 and 4:14.
