We are excited to host the Wormsloe Half and 10k in beautiful, iconic Wormsloe State Site in Savannah, GA! You get to run through Wormsloe Historic Site, one of the most beautiful, historically and nature-rich locations in the US. It’s a beautiful place to explore and run!

You will run through the old primitive colonial village giving you an idea of how some folks lived in the early 1800’s. The course you will run on is almost exclusively trail and gravel pathway. The course takes you along the shoreline of beautiful Shipyard Creek and the Skidaway River.
