We are making every effort for residents and businesses to plan ahead for this great event, he continued. Most road closures and detours along the routes will be in effect between 6 a.m. and 11 a.m. At 6:30 a.m., police and event personnel will implement a soft closure along the entire race course. The race begins at 8 a.m. and streets will reopen on a rolling basis as soon as the last participant has passed and all course support materials have been removed.
Streets along the earlier miles of the route will open earlier than roads along the end of the route. Please review the road closure grid and Sherrys Run 5K Course Map located on our website at www.sherrysrun.org for detailed information. Residents and businesses located near the race course are urged to plan ahead and be aware of road closure schedules and alternate access routes, Jasper said.
We have contacted the residents affected by the specific street closures and want to publically thank them for their understanding and support, he said, adding, The folks at Lebanon Public Safety have been a great help to us. We thank them for their help with event day logistics and for allowing us to close certain streets in town to accommodate this event.
The Sherrys Run 5K course, which begins at the Sherrys Run Event Site, 623 West Main Street in Lebanon, will head east on West Main Street, travel north on North Greenwood Street, passing the historic Woolen Mills to U.S. 70 North By-Pass (also known as Baddour Parkway); then heading west on the By-Pass to North Castle Heights Avenue traveling south to Hill Street.
At Hill Street, walkers may choose to continue on North Castle Heights returning to the Sherrys Run Event Site or continue on the race course onto Hill Street. Runners on the other hand will turn left onto Hill Street, traveling east again to North Greenwood Street, then south to West Main Street where they will travel west returning to the Runners Finish Line at the Sherrys Run Event site. Refer to the Sherrys Run 5K Course Map for specifics on the website at www.SherrysRun.org.
