Savannah Rails to Trails Runathon
Local time: 5:42 AM
Due to severe damages to the Savannah Rails to Trails, the runathon location has been moved to the following address:
Roberd's Dairy Farm
2500 Tennessee Ave.
Savannah, Ga 31404
The Roberd's Dairy Farm is a lovely location with breathtaking views of marshes and live oaks. The sunrises and sunsets from the vantage point of the DF are second to none, as some of you will soon learn. Although, the run will not be held on the McQueen's Island Trail you will not be disappointed with this venue we've chosen for you.
Please understand that we do not refund registration fees due to the large overhead this year's and last year's run has added to the run especially, considering that we have less than 100 runners to cover costs of medals, plaques, belt buckles, aid station food, permit costs, insurance, portable toilets and usage fees at the DF. We are willing to transfer your registration to another race we hold, if you'd like.

For those of you visiting from out of town and with family, please note that the location of the Roberd's Dairy Farm is just a 10 minute drive to downtown Savannah, a 15-20 minute drive to Tybee Island and, the DF is adjacent to Bonaventure Cemetery which is a very popular tourist stop. There are two restaurants about a mile from the DF that are worth checking out, if you desire to - Tortugas and Tubby's.
This is going to be the last run we hold for the Savannah Rails to Trails. So, it is with a heavy heart that we move on from this run and this trail but we want this to also be a celebration! The Savannah Rails to Trails has brought many people together. Lots of deep friendships have been formed due to this trail. And, the Savannah Rails to Trails was the location of Savannah's very first ultra marathon. So, please join us on this last run together in memory of the Savannah Rails to Trails.
We at Run 4 a Reason will do everything we can to make this run and this visit to Savannah a very memorable, challenging but happy experience!
Thank you all for the support!
