You asked, we listened! 


We’ve heard from many of you that want to participate but… you’ve moved out of area and loved the Cookie Classic.  Or, you have prior commitments, but still want to participate.   And others of you are all in on a January run…provided it’s in the afternoon, and maybe on a treadmill in a cozy place!


For all of you, we’re excited to announce the new Savannah Snoozer Virtual Run options! You'll complete your 5K as it best suits you: all at once, or broken up into sections, and at a time and place that fits your schedule.  Outside or hitting the treadmill inside - it's all up to you!


Savannah Snoozer:  As a participant, you get a t-shirt and much needed extra time under the blankets for just $20, until January 30th.  Your t-shirt will be delivered around 15 February 2017 -  right to your front door.  No need to venture out!


Super Savannah Snoozer: Want more, but still just don't want to stop hibernating?  Be a Super Snoozer! Get a t-shirt and medal for just $30 until January 30th while remaining toasty and warm waiting for Spring to arrive.
