11th Annual Savannah Mile

Memorial Day Weekend in Savannah kicked off bright and early on Saturday, May 28th at the 11th Annual Savannah Mile race to support the 200 Club of the Coastal Empire. Hundreds of runners from all age groups and skill levels began at the start line on Drayton Street at Forsyth Park to make the one mile journey North to the Finish Line at Broughton Street. Presented by Fleet Feet Sports Savannah and Savannah Lodging, the event raises much needed funds for the families of fallen first responders in our area and celebrates the lives of those lost in the line of duty.  The post-race party and award presentation took place in Johnson Square with highlights that included, Leopold's Ice Cream, Coca Cola and photo opportunities with Forrest Gump from Old Savannah Tours.
