Event Information

The Little Tybee Conquest is coming back around again on August 09, 2014. This time, as an 13.1 mile run! Runners will follow the Little Tybee Island coastline from North to South. At sections, the course will take you through thick palm forests. Again, the unspoiled beaches of Little Tybee will call out to you. Traversing Tree Beach will feel otherworldly. You will confront four channel crossings which require some wading and swimming . The channel crossings vary in distance depending on the tide. The widest channel is a little over 1/3 of a mile wide. The currents are strong whether an incoming or outgoing tide. We strongly recommend that you wear a PFD (personal flotation device) and/or carry flippers with you for the furthest channel crossing. The Little Tybee Conquest is purposely kept small with only 25 participants maximum in order to minimize our impact on this pristine Georgia Gem of an island. Proceeds from this race will go to Nature Conservancy.
