Tybee Critz Run Fest 2016 to add expo on Feb. 4th

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - For the first time, this year the packet pick-up and expo will be a one-day event and will take place at the Critz BMW showroom in Savannah, at the corner of Abercorn and Stephenson.

The winning design for the 2016 Tybee Critz Run Fest, chosen by online vote, is printed on the official race t-shirt, and will also be available for sale starting at the packet pick-up and expo on Thursday, Feb. 4th, and online following the races.

The winning design is by Katherine Wyman, a 53-year-old artist, painter and avid runner from Florida. She will be visiting Savannah and Tybee for the first time during the 2016 Critz Tybee Run Fest, and will participate in all five CTRF races.
