Important Warning about May 3, Regionals
OVR Girls Junior Championships:
The Capital City Half Marathon will run the morning of May 3rd. The first runner will be in the area around 8:20am and the last runner will be out of the area by 10:45am. Please plan on arriving early to the Convention Center to avoid traffic delays. Access to the convention center after 8am can be accomplished by: 670 from the east and comes down N. 3rd St. they can turn on to Chestnut and then go back north to Nationwide and 4th St. A link to their event website can be found here:
Here are some personal recommendations based on my past experiences:
- Stay EAST of High Street and NORTH of Broad
- The easiest parking deck to get to with rule #1 in mind is at 44 E Chestnut St. (only about a 3 block walk)
- Avoiding the marathon takes time. So does the ultra-slow traffic. From the moment you hit gridlock, you'll still have 30 minutes before you get your parking space. Leave early!
These rules are certainly no guaranty. They've worked for me the past two years. The other six or so I found myself stuck in terrible on Vine St. I'm very confident that these tips will help you arrive with much less stress.
Good luck! Go Freaks!
