Beware of road closures Sunday morning for Rock ‘n’ Roll half marathon
For those of us who aren't athletic enough to participate.
DALLAS As runners lace up their tennies for a rockin' jaunt through Dallas Sunday morning, roads will be highly affected by the Rock 'n' Roll half marathon. For the less ambitious and athletic, expect delays driving in Dallas proper in the neighborhoods of downtown Dallas, Uptown, Oak Lawn, Highland Park, the M Streets & Swiss Avenue, and in Fair Park.
The 13.1-mile race begins at Dallas City Hall in downtown Dallas and ends in Fair Park. It'll be a scenic jog through some of Dallas' prettiest neighborhoods and districts, plus runners will find live bands performing every mile of the race. At the finish line in Fair Park, singer/songwriter Andy Grammer will perform. He was called an "Artist to Watch" by Billboard in 2011.
Expect roads to be closed from 7 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. on Sunday, March 24, according to the marathon website. Roads may open earlier if runners have cleared the area safely.
Below is the course map for runners, the road closures for drivers, and the no-parking areas along the route.
