The Ledesma Sports Medicine Rails to Trails Ultra is coming back in 2014!
The race will take place at the same location on Saturday, January 11, 2014.
The LSM Rails to Trails 50k begins on the grounds of Historic Fort Pulaski and will include a scenic tour through the McQueen’s Island Rails to Trails before returning to Fort Pulaski, where it will end after two loops.
The Goal of this Race is two-fold: To mesh the growing popularity of Ultra Marathons with Savannah's growing love of longer-distance running; following the success of The Marathon & Half-Marathon last year, while raising Funding and Awareness for the Restoration and Maintenance of the severely eroded conditions on parts of the Historic Rails to Trails, a six mile converted Rails To Trail (Georgia's first) which runs parallel to Tybee Road Highway 80 East on McQueen’s Island. This trail was not only Georgia's First Rails To Trail conversion, but was also instrumental to Ft. Pulaski during The Civil War, boasting the site of Battery Hamilton.
Awards will be given to the First Place Female and Male of each race: 5k, 25k, 50k.
Medals will be given to All Finishers of the 50k and 25k races.
