August 30: The Milestone Half Marathon and 10k will be held at West Chatham Middle School, 800 Pine Barren Rd., Pooler. This training event, created to give our local runners an opportunity to check their progress in preparing for the Savannah Rock and Roll Marathon, will be benefiting local High School Youth Sports programs, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the FCA Endurance organization.
