Event Details      The American Diabetes Association will feature their 5K Run this year on the beautiful trail system at Skidaway Island State Park. This family-friendly venue is a great place where participants will also enjoy a large Health & Fitness Festival after the run with over 20 vendors performing many product demonstrations and free screenings. Live music, a light breakfast and children’s activities will also round out the day!
Race Location     Located near historic Savannah, the park borders  the Skidaway narrows, a part of Georgia’s intracoastal waterway.  As you are running, the trails wind through maritime forest and past salt marsh.  Runners can watch for deer, fiddler crabs, raccoon, egrets and other wildlife as they enjoy their run.  All of the trails are flat with little to no change in elevation.
Proceeds     All proceeds benefit the 2013 Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes Campaign of the American Diabetes Association in Savannah, GA.
