Course Closing

The course closes to runners and reopens to vehicle traffic according to the slowest allowable pace of a 14-minute mile. Waterstops will also close according to that pace. The finish line is the last section of the course to close, at 12:45 p.m. (6.25 hours after the start). To reiterate: The course does not remain open for 6.25 hours; it closes on a rolling 14-minute mile pace. If you are not keeping at least a 14-minute mile, you will need to run on the sidewalk.
