The half-marathon, 10K and 5K races all begin and end at Miller Park and will wind through many neighborhoods.

Alderman Michael Murphy stresses precaution when driving Saturday, as streets along the routes will experience rolling closures beginning at 6:30 a.m. and will reopen as the runners progress through those locations. The alderman asks that residents please pay attention to posted road closure signs.

Signs will be posted with information as to when parking will be restricted.

Alderman Murphy advises that residents be especially aware of temporary parking restrictions along the routes that exclaim, “NO PARKING—TOW AWAY ZONE.”

There will be different hours of parking restrictions depending on where a street is, in regard to the racecourse. Alderman Murphy alerts residents to move their vehicles to ensure the safety of all participants, as well as taking preventive steps so no vehicles will be fined.
