Temporary Road Closures This Sunday Due To Run

On Saturday, September 30, 2012 the first annual Peace Officer Memorial Run will be taking place. The event includes a 1/2 marathon, 5K, free kids fun run and safety faire.

The events begin at 7:00am, and there will be a brief ceremony beginning at 6:45am at 11th and I Streets. Street closure will begin at 6:30am and will continue throughout the morning. There will be numerous street closures in the downtown area, as well as in the Needham/College area around Graceada Park. Portions of East Bound Scenic Drive will be closed from Bodem to Coffee and Oakdale to Clause Road.

We ask that motorists slow and drive cautiously in the effected area as there will be several hundred runners and walkers in the roadways. We invite the public to come out and enjoy the event and encourage the runners.

The complete course maps can be located at www.peaceofficermemorialrun.com. Participants have until Friday to sign up at www.active.com. Final registration for the 1/2 marathon will be Saturday, September 29th at On the Run, a running store in McHenry Village. All participants are encouraged to pick up their race packet on September 29th at On the Run from noon until 6:00pm.
