OC Marathon On Sunday

HERE THEY COME AGAIN!
It's that time of the year again.  Thousands of runners and supporters will descend on our community Sunday, May 6th, for the running of the Orange County Marathon and its related shorter races.

PLAN YOUR DAY SUNDAY
This is a great event but, as you might expect, many neighborhoods through which the race route is plotted will be a total traffic snarl for several hours Sunday.  For those of us who live near the route of both the full marathon and the half marathon that begins less than an hour later it's important for us to plan our activities on Sunday carefully or risk being stranded or at least severely inconvenienced that day.

SCHEDULE AND MAPS
You can read all about the Marathon and the schedule of events at www.ocmarathon.com.  I've included maps of both the full marathon and half marathon courses for you below.  Just click on the images to make them larger.  You will also find them on the web site, along with very specific details about road closures along the route.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL COMPETITORS
Good luck to all of you participating and those who will line the course to cheer them on.

Geoff,
Thanks for publishing the information -- do you plan to run in the full marathon or the half one?
See you there.

Fellow Runner,
Just checked the weather report for Hades... no snow predicted for Sunday so, NO, I will not be joining you on your jaunt. Have a great time, stay hydrated and enjoy the day.

Sorry, no. On orders from his master, Dan Joyce had them all turned into fireworks stands for Riggy and Mensy.

Everyone that isn't already working at CMPD was drafted for MANDATORY overtime.

Must be Christmas in May!


Right, Steve?
