I can’t believe that in 4 short days I will be headed to Savannah for the Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon & 5k! This will be my second year participating and I’m really looking forward to a fun girls running weekend with my friends. One of the best things about this race weekend is the fact that the whole thing, starting with packet pickup through Yoga In The Park on Sunday, is geared towards woman.
The weekend starts off with the New Balance Fashion Fitness Expo which will host packet pick-up for the Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon & 5k, as well as serve as the ultimate relaxation event to kick off your race weekend right. With various food samplings, free massages and more, the New Balance Fashion Fitness Expo has everything today’s female runner seeks in a premium race experience.
I was super excited when I recently received some happy mail from New Balance! I mean really, who DOESN’T like getting packages in the mail? Now I’ve got a brand new pair of shoes and an outfit to wear during race weekend. I am very particular about my running shoes (thanks to all my weird physical issues), but I love the Zante V3 shoes that they sent! They are super comfy and great for “running” around town. I’ll definitely be sporting them this weekend as I’m exploring Savannah before and after the race.
New Balance will have all types of apparel available in their store at the Fashion Fitness Expo, along with custom, event branded apparel available as well. This is the perfect time to spoil yourself with some new running gear or event apparel.
In addition to all the sponsor vendors at the expo, there will also be 10+ local vendors to check out. One of the best things about this is that once you fall in love with these local merchants you can stop by their stores after the race to check out more of what they offer.
So bring your friends and take in this special event designed especially for you. The Expo is free and open to the public, so you can come check it out even if you aren’t doing the race.
