Punti salienti del corsoThe race begins at the corner of Bull and Bay Streets in the city’s downtown historic district, known for its plentiful hotels, shops, restaurants and bars that are filled to the rafters every St. Patrick’s Day. This time of year, however, the downtown is populated largely by tourists as well as students at the Savannah College of Art and Design, whose campus lies just blocks from where the race started. After the start through what is a really visually interesting part of Savannah — the historic district lies just a stone’s throw from the Savannah riverfront and walk — the race heads west along Bay Street and out of downtown, into some pretty nondescript areas. The course spends the next few miles heading mostly outside the city, through more industrial-warehouse-commercial district areas. However, this isn’t at all disappointing, especially for runners looking to set new personal record times or for runners trying their first marathon or half marathon — this course is pretty much tailor-made for someone who’s a first-timer, as it really is one of those few race courses that’s almost completely flat for the entire 13.1 miles. Once the race course approached the mile 6 marker, though, the scenery and the city became much more interesting as we headed back into more historic neighborhoods, with lots more people on the sidelines cheering runners on. Moss-covered trees lined with historic homes, and by the time we reached the later miles of the races, tons of people were out on the sidewalks — actually the lane available for runners really began to narrow in the stretch along Price and Henry Streets in the second half, when spectators nearly equaled the number of runners out there.
