Go for the Grits 5K


Join us in September to run one of the fastest and most scenic 5Ks in Georgia. The Go for the Grits 5K starts on the runway of the Jekyll Island Airport and takes runners on a course shaded by majestic live oaks into the island’s National Historic Landmark District. Runners and walkers will also enjoy closed roads with no traffic, plus access to the Shrimp & Grits Festival — voted Best Festival in the Southeast — before it opens to the general public. You’ll experience Jekyll Island’s unique blend of history and natural beauty in an unforgettable way.
