Tybee Critz Run 2015

This little beach town is a great place for a run! Come down and participate in the 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, 2.8 Mile Beach Run and 1 Mile Run.  You can choose all events or pick which you prefer. If you participate in all 5 events, the distances add up to 26.2 miles – a full marathon. Close to 5,000 people come here annually to join in on the fun. The Tybee Critz Run Fest has been recognized on the list of “2014 Top Races Worth Traveling to.”  The Critz Tybee Run Fest was the only race named in Georgia. Proceeds from the event are donated to organizations that foster education and healthy lifestyles.
There are several categories of winners and awards. They will give $10k to anyone that can beat the marathon world record. This fall Dennis Kimetto set a new world record in the marathon, clocking 2:02:57 at Berlin. He is the first man to run those 26.2 miles in under 2:03 and his time sparked speculation about when the two-hour barrier for the marathon might fall.
