SLC Marathon will force road closures this weekend

SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City Marathon is set to take place Saturday, April 23, causing several road closures during the races and auxiliary events.

Beginning early Saturday, anyone living, working, or visiting Salt Lake City can expect significant and potentially lengthy road closures as participants and spectators navigate the Salt Lake City Marathon.

Salt Lake City Police Officers will be stationed throughout the course to ensure the safety for all of those involved.

There are eight events planned for Saturday including the marathon, half-marathon, bike tour and several short distance running events.

The Salt Lake City Police Department is working with the event organizers to lessen any impact on the community. To ensure the safety of race participants and spectators, some segments of the race course require 100% closure. Some of these select street closures could be in place for up to seven hours. All roadway users are encouraged to follow all posted signs and directions from officers along the race course.

Course maps are available for review on the Salt Lake City Marathon’s website. Community members should review them and prepare to avoid those areas or delay travel, if possible. Individuals have been advised to use extreme caution when traveling through the area as there will be a significant increase in vehicle, pedestrian, and bicycle traffic.
