Rock N Roll Marathon Savannah, GA

Savannah just wrapped up their second annual Rock 'N' Roll Marathon! Runners from across the nation made their way to Savannah's Historic District to run, jog, and make their way through the finish line!! Congrats to all those who crossed it :) Savannah is happy and proud for you; we can't wait to see you again next year.

2013 Rock 'N' Roll Marathon (Officially benefiting the American Cancer Society) said to take place on November 9th, 2013

"It's a running revolution, where the finish line party stretches all the way back to the starting line with live bands, throbbing crowds line the streets. So crank up the volume and let the music carry you through the miles of heart-pounding sweat. Here, it's all about the journey."
