Sorry for the multiple emails, but due to the overwhelming response, we have come up with a more efficient process to secure a hotel reservation in Savannah.
Here are the hotel details:
Fairfield Inn – Savannah Midtown (2 Lee Blvd) Located 8 miles from the start and 10 miles from the finish. Room rate is $129 per night + tax for 2 queen beds. Each room is currently being held for 3 nights (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) but can be adjusted if needed.
We are also contemplating trying to secure a bus or two to bring us to and from the race. If you are interested in pitching in for this type of transportation, please let Sandy know. If we have enough interested parties this could become a reality. I envision a bus (pre-loaded with some post race adult beverages) that would drop us off in the morning and then possibly make multiple trips post race back to the hotel. (maybe one for the mini group and one for the marathoners) This trip has the makings to become one for the history books!
If you would like one of these rooms, please call Sandy Beckhart (502-291-1131) directly to reserve a room. You will need to provide Sandy with a credit card (she will officially transfer a room into your name) and an email address to receive confirmation.
One last thing, if you are looking for a roommate, please talk with other runners before calling Sandy to reserve a room. We will do what we can to help, but we cannot be responsible for finding the perfect roommate.
That’s all for this week, I promise!
