SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

In one month thousands of runners will be back on Savannah's streets for the third annual Rock n Roll Marathon.

Official changes, including the route of the marathon, will be announced Thursday.

A relay race is being added and the race will start an hour earlier. Also starting this year is a friendly competition between neighborhood associations along the route to thank them for all of their support.

Malain McCormick, event director, hopes the competition adds more fun to the race.

"What we are asking is for them to choose a spot in their neighborhood so we know which association they are representing and come up with a theme and stay out there and cheer on the runners from the last runner."

The top three winners receive cash prices: $1,000 for first down to $500 for third place.
