On Sunday, April 24, 2016, the Columbia Half Marathon will be run on the streets of Columbia. This email is to inform you of the impact to neighborhoods and roads. Here is a map of the race for reference.
The 13.1 mile run course will pass by through the 4 Columbia Neighborhoods (Hickory Ridge, Wilde Lake, Town Center and Harper’s Choice). On roads which have only one lane of travel in each direction, runners will occupy the shoulder of the road. On roads which have two lanes of travel, runners will occupy the lane closest to the curb. Traffic cones will be placed along the 13.1 mile course to provide safely for all runners. There will be no road closures however vehicle traffic may experience delays. The official start of this race is 8:00 AM. We anticipate the conclusion of this race to be around 11:00 AM.
You can expect to see VMS board notifications starting Thursday, April 21 in and around Town Center. Additionally, yard signs will be placed at all major intersections and turns along the course notifying the community of this race. These yards signs will be removed no later than 7pm on Monday, April 25.
We thank you in advance for your understanding and support of this community-based event. Additional information can be viewed at www.columbia-halfmarathon.com.
