We’d love for you to stay and enjoy the festivities on Tybee during and after the races, so we’re providing you with a reusable cinch bag (available at packet pick-up, first come first serve for Saturday races only) to bring a change of clothes, so you can change post race. Please drop your clothes off at the clothing drop at the Strand (near the finish line in the post race party area) 30 minutes before the start of the race, and we will store it for you. You will provided with a label to write your race number on to mark your bag.  After the race you can pick up your clothes and change in one of the changing stations provided. After awards and post race celebration, think about going to one of the many restaurants within walking distance from the finish line.

(We are not responsible for lost or stolen items.)


If you are running the 10K and the Half Marathon, please be sure you can run the 10K in at least 1 hour and 15 minutes. This will ensure a smooth transition for you between the 10K finish and Half Marathon start. Remember that the Half Marathon will start at exactly 8:30am. The timing mat at the Half Marathon starting line will be turned off precisely 10 minutes after the start horn. This still gives you a 10 minute grace period in case you do not finish in under 1½ hours.

Every competitor should be able to complete the Half Marathon in under 3½ hours. After 3½ hours, remaining participants will be asked to complete the remainder of the course on their own, on the sidewalk.
