Savannah State plays host to thousands for the Rock N' Roll Marathon

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Rock n' Roll marathon ran past five parks, through a dozen neighborhoods and into one home: Welcome to Savannah State University.

Savannah State welcomed the full marathon with full enthusiasm, sort of like several thousand house guests being shown hospitality, encouragement and the best way around.

Sports teams lined the SSU track and student organizations manned speed bumps all across campus - a thoughtful "watch your step'' as well as a sign of support.

The runners were on campus for two and a half miles, a fraction of the marathon course, so it passed through quickly. But Savannah State's impact on this event will be remembered for as long as the race is.
