Savannah Virtual Race Review
The Savannah Virtual Race was one of the very first races that the Sloth and I signed up for. In fact, it was race #3 for me. We had just taken a road trip to Savannah less than 3 months prior, so when we found this race we had to have it.
We had already walked the city of Savannah and, believe me, we did well over 11.66 miles. So, we had already earned the coin in our eyes. But we went ahead and repeated the miles to earn the coin. It took me two days to cover that 11.66 miles again. I earned the coin on May 10th, 2020.

What I Liked
There were several things I liked about the Savannah Virtual Race:
- Interactive Map
I love that the distance we covered was directly related to the streets of Savannah. In fact, we took a ghost tour in Savannah when we were there and that walk was very similar to what the race map covers.
I kind of liked that we earned a coin instead of a medal. When I was in the military, we had challenge coins which I collected. I have a bunch of coins in a box that I bought when I was stationed in Panama. So it was cool to get a coin for this one.
I like that we can set our own goals for the race and it gives us a chart where we can track our performance against our goal. Another really cool feature is the interactive map. There are digital thumbtacks throughout the map and when you click on them, you get a picture from where you are in Savannah on the map.
What I Disliked
I guess the Savannah Virtual Race review should also report what I didn’t like about it, right? There weren’t many things I disliked about this race. Maybe just a few:
- No Bib
- No Medal
Don’t get me wrong, I love the coin. But I would also like to earn a race bib and medal for walking the streets of Savannah.
It was a little confusing to me that the they decided to do a coin for this race instead of a medal. I mean, New Orleans has a medal. Why wouldn’t Savannah get a medal? But that may just be my OCD talking.
Regardless, I would’ve loved a medal. But I got a coin. No big deal. I knew what I was getting when I signed up.
So, the Savannah Virtual Race actually pretty cool. The coin has the fountain on it from Forsyth Park which was actually one of the stops on our road trip. It is a nice coin to add to my collection.
I do not regret this race. It was a quick, fairly easy one and it means a lot because of our road trip. You should do it too! Have you been to Savannah?
