tybeelogo.jpgOnline registration for the 2015 Critz Tybee Run Fest, a unique series of races totaling 26.2 miles, is higher than ever before due to the ease of online sign-up, along with some great discounts.

"We are thrilled to see the increase in online registrations for 2015, thus far,” stated Cornelia Stumpf, Marketing Director for the Critz Tybee Run Fest. “It is great to see runners taking advantage of the holiday promotions and the previous discounts for this year’s event.”

The team at the Critz Tybee Run Fest believes the ease of online registration and the Critz Tybee Run Fest presence in the community has attributed to increasing registration numbers. In addition to online registration, participants are able to sign up and receive more information about the spectacular 2 day, 5 race event at other running expo events, like the Savannah Bridge Run or the Rock ’n ’Roll Savannah Marathon, and at other community events, including the Wilmington Island Farmer’s Market, The Savannah Food Festival and the Diabetes Walk in Forsyth Park. Postcards and fliers can be found locally around Savannah and Tybee Island at participating sponsors’ stores and offices - - and a variety of running stores along the East Coast.

As the Critz Tybee Run Fest continues to grow, it is truly reflecting its unique, one-of-a-kind event that is drawing participants from all over. Over 1,700 registrations have already been received for the 2015 race event, and there is still time to act quickly to secure your spot in this wonderful weekend.

Rates will increase again January 9th, but all military and first responders will always be able to take advantage of "Early Bird" rates.
