friday five 2.0: five reasons to run publix savannah women’s half

This is a sponsored post. I am an ambassador for Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon & 5K. Due to that relationship, I receive a complimentary race registration, as well as other sponsor amenities in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.


We are ending the week with the Friday Five 2.0, hosted by Fairytales and Fitness and Running on Happy.


Be sure to link up with your own posts, and visit our hosts and other bloggers in the group!

The last Friday of the month is a free day, so I thought I would share some reasons to add Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon & 5K to your spring race calendar.

Five reasons to ru

I am so looking forward to April 8 and the third annual Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon & 5K. It’s a beautifully done event, comprising an entire weekend of running, shopping, friendship and fitness.

Spend the weekend in one of the East Coast’s most beautiful cities.

Savannah is such a beautiful city – it has a little bit of everything. I can easily spend entire days just walking the squares, soaking in the history and architecture, shopping in the local stores, and sampling the delicious cuisine. Getting to run 13.1 miles through these streets is a wonderful way to see Savannah, and having so many sights to see helps the miles pass quickly.


Receive a really unique participant gift.

The Publix Women’s Savannah Half Marathon & 5K offers a little something different than   the standard race shirt to its participants. I do love the idea of race shirts, but the truth is they don’t always fit properly and I very rarely run in t-shirts. At the Publix Women’s Savannah Half, registrants will receive this New Balance gift: a stunning expandable bangle.

I can’t wait to show mine off after the race!

Gorgeous Bling

But the bling doesn’t stop with a bracelet! This year’s finisher’s medals are even more beautiful than last year’s! The Savannah skyline stands out in relief against a sparkly round frame. I love the cut out details and the thick custom ribbons.

Finishers of both distances will receive one of these beauties!

Epic Finish

The Publix Savannah Women’s Half prides itself on its unique ending. The finish line is just past the iconic fountain in Forsyth Park, which lends itself to some absolutely amazing end-of-race photos.
