Don't miss the wettest and most exciting event of the year in Savannah. The 2016 Summer Soaker 5K is just what your family needs to beat the heat. Bring the kids to join in this annual tradition that both kids and adults love. Make your reservations at Best Western Plus Savannah Historic District and get ready for a full weekend of summer fun!
Race day is July 16th and the event is located on Hutchinson Island just five minutes from our hotel. The 1/2 mile kids' race kicks off at 7:45 am, while the adults test their soggy running skills through the 5K course at 8:00 am. As you race through the route, be prepared to be soaked with water from spectators and your fellow participants. You may get very wet, but you're guaranteed to have a huge smile on your face when you cross the finish line.
If you're planning a whole weekend around the event, you can pick up your registration pack at Dick's Sporting Goods (318 Mall Boulevard, Savannah) on July 15th. Make sure to stick around after the race for a slice of tasty watermelon to help cool you down. Remember, you will get wet during this fun event, so think about leaving your electronic devices behind. And most importantly, don't forget your water gun!
