About This Activity

Optim Orthopedics Skidaway Island Marathon and Half
March 25, 7:00am 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 Savannahians want to, it isn't on your every day tourist website because this course is hosted in the premiere Island Neighborhood;  The Landings Association and The Landings Club. This is our third year and we are looking forward to bringing this years event back for the first time on a weekend other then Easter Weekend.

The Course:

You will enjoy miles of perfect scenery, amazing marsh and river front views, elegant homes and sneek 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 flat other then 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 in march 66 degrees but it is warmer at the end of the month and has been warmer the last two years.
