The 10th annual Running USA conference is being held in Savannah this year on February 24, 25 & 26. This is running’s premier conference and also the largest.

 Running Conference Program Highlights

Daily General Sessions:  Industry relevant topics presented to the entire audience.

Idea Labs: One hour sessions and presentations that drill down on specific topics. Each session presenter is considered an expert on their specific topic.

Industry Give & Take Session: The ever popular “round tables” are 20 minute rotations by table topic. Each table is assigned a facilitator of that topic and conversation. This is a great opportunity to share and learn directly from your peers.

Why Stay at a Savannah Vacation Rental?

Firstly, all the rooms at the Hyatt Regency, where the conference is taking place, are already booked. Running USA’s other lodging suggestion, the Bohemian Hotel, is asking over $200 per room. If you choose one of our properties, you support a local business owner, stay in the heart of the historic district of Savannah and have access to full kitchens, where you can prep some of your own food rather than eating out for every meal. Check out our Rental House at 109 West Liberty Street – with comparable prices, especially if you have a group of four or more, we would love to be your Savannah lodging choice!
