Each year, tens of thousands of runners (and runner-enthusiasts) flood the streets of Savannah to rock and roll. What started as a simple idea to combine a marathon with live music in 1988 is now a full festival weekend that's raised millions of dollars for charity.

Whether you're planning to take on the full marathon, share the fun with friends in the relay, or spread a blanket to enjoy the awesome live music, Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Savannah has something for everyone.

We've compiled the must-know event information with recommended things to do, places to eat, and - of course - the best Savannah vacation rentals to stay in. On your mark, get set, go!

RUN PREP

Runners participating in the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon, 1/2 Marathon, or 5k will need to load up on a carb-heavy meal the night before. Lucky for you, Savannah is no stranger to a filling meal. On your list should be Italian gems such as Pacci, Cha Bella, or new kids in town: Sugo Rossa and 1540 Room. If you're in the mood for true Southern cuisine, look no further than Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room or Sisters of the New South

In need of some last minute running gear? Fleet Feet Sports Savannah is the shoe-whiz in town, with an indoor track and running experts to help you put your best foot forward. For athletic and other outdoor gear, Half Moon Outfitters on Broughton Street is a local fave.

MARATHON RECOVERY

Congratulations! You just rocked (and rolled) that marathon. After a nice hot shower in your downtown vacation rental, you'll want to head out for a meal rich in protein. Grab a loaded salad from Kayak Cafe or hop across the street for a smoothie bowl at Beetnix Savannah Juice Bar. Plan to treat yourself? You deserve it! Skip the greens and head to Tequila's Town for delicious table-side guacamole,  take a bite out of the best burger in town at Green Truck Pub, or celebrate with a cold one at Crystal Beer Parlor. Cheers!

If you plan on doing a bit of sightseeing on foot, check out A Run in the Savannah Sun for the best downtown running trails.
