SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) – People from all over are racing to the fashion expo right now ahead of the Publix Savannah Women’s 5K and Half Marathon on Saturday.

“Everyone is just so excited to be back. This race is so unique and just so special to so many people, men and women of all ages, all shapes, all sizes. To be able to come back after these two years and see this happen again, it makes all the hard work worthwhile,” Savannah Sports Council event manager Kately Presti said.
