Kickoff to Rock 'n' Roll Marathon held on Congress St.

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

We are getting closer to the biggest race in Savannah: The Rock 'n' Roll Marathon.

Thousands will pour into Savanah on Nov. 8 and 9 to lace up their running shoes. 

Tuesday night was the official kickoff and registration at the Rail Pub on Congress Street.

Prizes were given out, and some folks even decided to get out and run in the rain. However, this year, the big event will be a little different.

"The event is very important to Savannah. We actually added another day to the event this year. We added a Sunday, so we will have a 5k and a mile, so it will make it even bigger. The marathon brings people to Savannah during a time of year that usually, they would not come," said Melissa Ramsey, Fleet Feet Savannah Training Director. 

Registration is now open. Visit the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon website here for everything you need.
