Savannah Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon 2012

November 12th, 2012 by Joe Celento

McMillan Inn was proud to host six runners in this year’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon.  Our guests participated in the half-marathon, and the full marathon!

Each race participant received a special goodie bag upon arrival, and a light breakfast of bagels, fruit, and quiche the morning of the race. Some of the runners enjoyed pasta the night before the race at Leocis italian restaurant one block from McMillan Inn.   The race began at Bay Street only 8/10ths of a mile away from the Inn, a great warm up route however  the Owner, Joe shuttled the guests up to the starting point saving them that one extra mile!  The race ended at Forsyth Park, just two blocks away from the McMillan Inn, which also hosted live bands all day.  Our runners arrived back at the Inn exhausted but happy with their performance, and we had celebratory peach tea, butter cakes, and cookies waiting  upon their return.

A jovial atmosphere surrounded our breakfast table the following morning as guests enjoyed our legendary full hot gourmet breakfast and recounted the details of the race.  We are very inspired by their dedication and hope to see them again next year!

If you or someone you know is participating in the 2013 Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon and would like to stay with us, please remember to book early at McMillan Inn as rooms fill up quickly!
