Resident Information

Although we are doing our best to lessen any impact on our community, we expect that there will be some impact on traffic to your homes or places of business on race morning. We will keep you as informed as possible about the race route and reopening schedule. With some advanced planning and allowing for a little additional travel time, we hope the impact will be minimal.

To ensure the safety of our participants, we select course segments that require 100% closure. Many course segments are only restricted to one-way traffic. We take our direction from the public safety departments of the participating municipalities of Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, the City of South Salt Lake, Murray City and Holladay City.

In some areas the course will be only available for use by the marathon, half marathon, 10K Skate and 5K participants. Some of these select street closures could be for up to seven hours.

Be sure to plan ahead for the best routes to your home or business!

Approximate Road Closure Times

Salt Lake City police officers will allow traffic to cross the route at major intersections as crowds allow. Your patience is much appreciated! Traffic from the Avenues neighborhoods can cross 11th Avenue at I street and routes above M will be clear of runners.
