Texas man running in his 36th marathon in Savannah

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - During Friday's Rock n' Roll Marathon packet pickup at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center, we caught up with a special runner from out of state.

Ty Cardwell, making the trip from Texas, is competing in his 36th marathon.

He told us Savannah is one of his favorite courses.

"The layout of the course, for me, it's a faster course than say the Boston or any other marathon that I've done," said Cardwell.

Race organizers are expecting more than 17,000 runners from each state and all over the world to race Saturday morning.
