Coastal Georgia Greenway 155 – Savannah, GA – 3/29/2019 to 4/1/2019
19-45-001; Road race; Georgia Assoc.
The CGG 155 came to fruition in 2015 by a group of friends from Savannah, Ga that were fascinated by the aspect of an envisioned long corridor of trails and green space spanning the coast of Georgia from St. Mary’s to Savannah, Ga. The visionary for the Coastal Georgia Greenway is Ms. Jo Claire Hickson. She’s worked hard for the past twenty years trying to bring to fruition her vision of the CGG. Our way of helping her realize her dream and vision is to host an annual long run the last weekend of March called the CGG 155. The more the CGG is promoted the greater the impact it will have on it coming to fruition.
The CGG is comprised of 20% trails and 80% on highways. Obviously, we would like the CGG to be all on trails but currently, we have to deal with highway running mostly.
We now offer two distinct races for the Coastal Georgia Greenway, – CGG 155 mile ultra and, CGG 100 mile ultra.
The CGG 155 starts Friday, March 29th at 5:00 am on Hutchinson Island, Savannah, Ga., in between the Savannah Convention Center and, the Westin Hotel. For location: Click here
The CGG 100 starts on Saturday, March 30th at 6:00 am at the Smallest Church. For location: Click here
The maximum time frame for the CGG 155 is 60 hours.
The maximum time frame for the CGG 100 is 35 hours.
Both races end at the same location, – St. Mary’s Howard Gilman Memorial Waterfront Park, 100 W. St. Mary’s St, St. Mary’s, GA 31558 at 5:00 pm.
