Description

March 13th 2021 SKIDAWAY ISLAND MARATHON Original Course
March 13th, 7:00am Start, 7:30am 5k Start

Savannah has been called, "America's most beautiful city" and Skidaway Island is one of its jewels. This is your opportunity to run where most Savannahians only dream if running. It isn't on your everyday tourist website because this course is hosted in the premiere Island Neighborhood; The Landings Association and The Landings Club

Run Saturday 21st, at 7am in either the half or full marathon. Enjoy beautiful scenery, a quiet and peaceful course hosted by a local race company. About 250 of our runners will participate in the Marathon and 500 in the half. 150 more will run the 5k trail run. Then enjoy an afternoon in the fabulous Savannah Area. You can tour downtown, hit the beach on Tybee Island or explore the rivers looking for dolphins or fishing. 

The Course:

You will enjoy miles of perfect scenery, amazing marsh and river front views, elegant homes and sneak peaks of the Landings Golf Courses. This is mostly an open course because the traffic is minimal, and you'll likely share the road with a homeowner enjoying their daily golf cart ride. The course is almost entirely paved; generally super flat other than a Savannah hill (one over pass). It is certified by US Track and Field and can be used as a qualifying time. You can expect green grass, flowers and cool breezes off the marsh. The average temperature has been in the mid 70s. It is small next to the national races so you won't be fighting an crowds for your free parking.

To comply with state protocals, local requirements and general safety we are making the following changes to the event and ask that you help us. People are coming from all over the country - BE OVERLY CAUTIOUS, BE KIND, BE CONSIDERATE.

1. Masks - when you are unable to maintain social distance from other runners we ask that you please were a mask. This is much more difficult at the start of the race then the finish. No masks are required while running but please wear a mask at packet pickup, registration line if any, the bathroom lines and anywhere you see you are confined. 

2. Sanitizer and hand washing stations are provided. Please use them. 

3. If you exhibit signs of illness prior to the race you will be asked not to participate and we will provide a refund / deferral or transfer no problem and no verification required. 

4. We are limiting our volunteers and removing all vendors to the absolute smallest number of people possible so please pay close attention to the volunteers and first responders on the course who will be at the most important intersections and water stations.

5. All food and beverages will be package/bottled. Please make sure to drop any bottles off at the next water station or on a race sign to make it easier to clean up. This is a residential neighborhood and respecting their property is paramount so please do not drop trash randomly as you run.

6. Finish fine food will be prepackage. 

7. Please use touch free greetings. Avoid hugging person after person as you don't know what you are spreading.

8. Marathon Runners can easily over exert themselves during these races. Please consider that you may hurt your immune system by pushing too hard. Humidity in savannah is often more impactful then you may realize. If we feel that you are over extended and a risk to yourself and others we will pull you from the event. 

9. This event is strictly positive. DO NOT pick fights with other runners or designate yourself as law enforcement. Do not invade someone's personal space. Treat people with respect and dignity even if you disagree. We are here to run, raise money for local charities and have a great day. Please be overly considerate and aware of other people, especially those you disagree with.
