Elite runners and fast times aside, Saturday's races were all about the party atmosphere. Several local bands, including the Savannah State University Tiger's Marching Band & Drumline, Perpetual Care, Cory Chambers Jazz Band, Tiger Creek and Islands High School Marching Sharks performed live on improved band stages along the route interspersed with cheerleaders and themed water stations.
Participants moved along to more music than ever with all new mile-markers that included speakers while taking in the local scenery and city streets packed with spectator support.
The musically themed road race celebrated the day's accomplishments with the sounds of Huntington Beach based artist, Michael Franti & Spearhead, who headlined the Toyota Rock 'n' Roll Concert Series at the finish line festival held at Forsyth Park.
