The Critz Tybee Run Fest is an annual weekend event, combining five different races from 1 mile to 13.1 miles, totaling up to the 26.2 mile marathon distance. With the variety of race distances, including a half marathon, the race event appeals to a mixed-skill spectrum of runners. Close to 5,000 participants are traveling to Tybee Island, Georgia each February to participate in a “one of a kind” event. In addition to a world-class race atmosphere, the Critz Tybee Run Fest provides entertainment for families and friends traveling with the participants. Proceeds from the event are donated to organizations that foster education and healthy lifestyles. In spring 2014 the Critz Tybee Run Fest was named one of the “TOP 50 race events in the USA worth travelling to” by Tripadvisor’s Flipkey.
