Details     Join the YMCA of Coastal Georgia for a Day in the Park! Come for the race and stay for the big YMCA party! The race will start and finish in the northeast corner of the park on Gaston Street and wind around the park and then down Bull Street through Savannah's historic squares down to Johnson Square and back up Bull Street to the Park. After the race, a YMCA style family party will be held with activities like Zumba in the park, Health Screenings, Inflatables for the kids and so much more! This year we are adding a two person relay. Find a teammate, first person runs the 5K, passes the baton, then the 2nd teammate runs the 5K. Your times are then combined for determining awards.
