Road2Hope Marathon Detours on Sunday

The Road2Hope marathon takes place on Sunday, November 4th, 2012. The marathon consists of a full and a partial marathon, each resulting in separate road and lane closures. The race routing has been revised this year to minimize traffic impacts.

The full marathon (42 km) starts at Dofasco Park (1st Road East, south of Green Mountain Road) in upper Stoney Creek at 8:00 AM. The runners proceed north on 1st Road East, east on Ridge Road, south on 5th Road East, west on Mud Street, north on the Red Hill Valley Parkway exiting at Barton Street. The runners will continue west on Barton Street and enter the Red Hill rail trail just west of the southbound off ramp. The runners will remain on the rail trail, take the new bridge over the QEW and exit at Van Wagners Beach Blvd. Runners will cross the street near Confederation Park and proceed to the Beach Trail (Burlington bound). Runners will exit onto Beach Blvd. near Van Wagners and continue northwest (Burlington bound) on the lake side of Beach Blvd. The runners will then enter the Beach trail near Eastport Drive and return via the Beach trail to Confederation Park.

The half marathon (21 km) starts at Dofasco Park at 8:15 AM and proceeds south on 1st Road East. Runners then follow the full marathon routing until Beach Blvd., entering the beach trail about half way down Beach Blvd. then continuing to Confederation Park.

The following road and lane closures that will affect HSR will be in effect while the race is in progress:

- Mud Street (northerly westbound lane only) between Upper Centennial and the RHVP, approximate times 8:15 AM to 9:30 AM.
