SAVANNAH — The oldest city in Georgia played host to thousands of runners and hundreds of musicians and entertainers at the seventh edition of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Savannah Marathon & ½ Marathon on Saturday. Conditions in the “hostess city of the South” were warm for this time of year, but organizers had prepared to give participants the best-possible race and started the event 10 minutes early. Nevertheless, at the sounding of the starting gun, temperatures were in the high 50s—optimal for fast times and many PRs.
