Third Annual Savannah Rails to Trails Ultra
Local time: 6:47 AM
The race will take place at the same location as last year, Ft. Pulaski and the Rails to Trails in Savannah, on Saturday, January 10, 2015.
Last year's 5.2 mile loop proved very popular but many of you asked for a little more of the McQueen's Island trail in the loop.
So, the 2015 loop will be 7.75 miles long and will have two fully manned aid stations and, incorporate more of the McQueen's Island trail.
The 2015 race will also introduce a 50k relay option with teams made of 3 runners.
Parking for the event will be on the premises of Ft. Pulaski by the pine forest picnic area. Please do not park in front of the old fortress. The parking spots in front of the old fortress are for people visiting that monument. Racers will have designated parking near the start/finish of the race.
Awards and Swag
All finishers of every race will get medals
There will be trophies for the winner of each race, 1st place male, 1st place female – for 25k, 50k & 50k relay
Average temperature around Ft. Pulaski/Savannah/Tybee Island in January is between 40* and 60*. Please monitor the weather as we get closer to race day to determine what racing attire to wear.
25k & 50k Race Course
The course for the 25k and 50k is 7.75 miles. The 25k runners will run this course 2 times and the 50k runners, 4 times.
Please note, there is an 8 hour time limit on the 25k and 50k meaning that if you are not in a realistic position of finishing either of the races by 3:30 pm you will get a DNF.
