SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The third annual Rock 'n' Roll Savannah Marathon and Half Marathon will take to the streets first thing Saturday morning. 

Runners were able to start picking up their race numbers on Thursday at a free health and fitness expo at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center on Hutchinson Island. The expo will continue Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the same location. Runners must pick up their numbers at the expo. 

Savannah-Chatham Metro police say they are expecting long lines so you might want to get there early. 

WTOC has everything you need to know on this year's race. Click here for WTOC's Rock 'n' Roll section, which includes a map of the course, list of street closures, a link to track runners during the race, plus so much more. 

Speaking of tracking runners, you can watch all of the marathon participants cross the start line live on WTOC-TV Saturday from 6 until 7:30 a.m. After that, the race will be livestreaming online at wtoc.com and on WTOC's news app, up until the last runner crosses the finish.
