Annually, the YMCA of Coastal Georgia hosts the Heart of Savannah 5K race in the heart of downtown Savannah, Forsyth Park!
Come for the race and stay for a fun family style YMCA party! This year’s event will feature a 5K Run, 1 Mile Survivors walk and a 1/4 mile kid's run. All of the proceeds from the event will support the Y’s newest program, LIVESTRONG at the Y, a free 12 week program, to help cancer survivors regain their physical and mental strength after treatment through exercise programs specifically for cancer survivors. This year’s event will feature a 1 Mile Survivor’s Walk to celebrate life and hope.
The race will start and finish near the Drayton Lawn in Forsyth Park near Drayton and Hall Streets and wind around the park and then down Bull Street through Savannah’s historic squares down to Johnson Square and back up Bull Street to the Park. After the race, a YMCA style party will be held with activities like Zumba in the park, Health Screenings, inflatables for the kids and something for everyone!
Congratulations to all of our runners for the 2016 race. View official race results here.
