Fitz and the Tantrums to headline Rock ‘n’ Roll Savannah Marathon & ½ Marathon

Indie band Fitz and the Tantrums will headline the 2017 Rock ‘n’ Roll Savannah Marathon & ½ Marathon on Saturday, November 4, 2017. The band will perform at the finish line festival in Forsyth Park for the Toyota Rock ‘n’ Roll Concert Series.

The concert is free and open to the public.

“Fitz and the Tantrums will be an epic race day finale and are guaranteed to make ‘your hands clap’,” said Miyoko Beetem, Event Manager. “With a beautiful finish line festival at Forsyth Park and live entertainment from start to finish, Savannah is a race you don’t want to miss. There is still plenty of time to register and start a training program so lace up those running shoes and join us this fall in Savannah.”

Rock ‘n’ Roll Savannah will feature two-days of running with the marathon, half marathon and two-person half marathon relay on Saturday, November 4 at 7:30 am and the Rock ‘n’ Roll 5K and One Mile run on Sunday, November 5 at 1:00 pm and 2:30 pm, respectively. Participants can take the “Remix Challenge” by running any distance Saturday and any distance on Sunday to earn the coveted Remix Challenge medal in addition to each race’s finisher medals.

The marathon, half marathon and two-person half marathon relay will once again start on Bay Street at Bull Street and finish at Forsyth Park. Runners will experience charming town squares, historic buildings and canopies of Spanish moss-covered trees. The 5K and One Mile run will take place at Daffin Park.
