On October 19, 2013, Critz Tybee Run Fest joined the City of Savannah in celebrating the third event of the citywide Play Streets series program.
The Family- oriented event took place at the Savannah West Broad Y on May Street from 1 PM– 4 PM. One of the main activities and attraction for young and old was the FUN RUN, sponsored by the CRITZ TYBEE RUN FEST at 3 PM.
Representatives from the Critz Tybee Run Fest offered information on running, exercise and healthy eating, and assisted in FUN RUN participants with stretching tips and warm up exercises.
Aftera5minute warm up with “jumping jacks” and “running in place” the crowd took off for a ¼ mile loop. At the finish arch medals for everybody awaited the runners as well as water to replenish and apples as a healthy snack. Several newcomers signed up for the February 2014 race. “The Critz Tybee Run Fest is glad to be part of Play Streets”, commented one of the Critz Tybee Run Fest volunteers.” We love to see kids start running and have fun. Hopefully several of them will join us for the kids run or the 1 mile in Tybee in 2014.”
Play Streets was the first 2013 community event for the Critz Tybee Run Fest. The crew will promote the 2014 race campaign on future events such as Food Day on October 26th in Daffin Park, the Rock n Roll Marathon Expo on November 7th and 8th, the Forsyth Park Famers Market on November 16th, and the Savannah Bridge Run Expo on December 6th.
