ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Hundreds of those visiting Albany laced up their tennis shoes for the Snickers Bar Marathon Energy Bar Marathon Saturday morning.

Close to 1500 runners hit the streets to participate. But thick morning fog made this year's run extra challenging for volunteers and public safety officials.

Visibility was at a quarter mile at its best with many locations having zero visibility.

"We are basically making sure the marathoners are safe, making sure they stay on their track. And we are cheering them on. With the traffic coming, we have to make sure they are seen, but everyone has been great," said volunteer, Patti Thornhill.

The fastest runner Saturday morning completed the 26 mile run at two hours and 19-minutes.
