2021 Rock n Roll Savannah Marathon

Get set for the 2021 Rock ‘n’ Roll Savannah Marathon! This popular, annual event sees thousands of runners and spectators hitting the streets of Savannah with live bands, cheer teams, and more. November 6th through the 7th, 2021.

Confirmation for Rock ‘n’ Roll Savannah 2021 came late this year due to the ongoing pandemic. Luckily, local health officials have determined that it’s currently safe enough to relax restrictions on large outdoor gatherings. Runners will still need to provide proof of vaccination or a recent negative test result to participate in the race. Otherwise, the race is on with more than 15,000 runners expected to participate.

And who can blame them? Rock ‘n’ Roll Savannah is a whole lot of fun!

Races at the event include a marathon and half marathon, a half marathon relay, a 5K, and a 1 mile race. Rock ‘n’ Roll Savannah’s flat, fast course takes you through the heart of the city, under Spanish moss draped oaks and past antebellum architecture. The finish line is located in beautiful Forsyth Park, just a 5 minute stroll from our Savannah bed and breakfast, McMillan Inn.

Spectators and special cheer teams will cheer you on all along the route – and don’t forget all the great, live music! That’s how the Rock ‘n’ Roll marathons got their name. Live bands from a variety of genres perform along the course, providing motivating, musical encouragement.

Even better, a live concert in Forsyth Park is scheduled for the end of the race!
