If you live in or near Silver Lake, don’t think you can just ignore this new HALF MARATHON event – Just about all the streets will be closed on Sunday.
I wish I could, say, tell you exactly which streets will be closed and at what time, but apparently that info isn’t available. The recorded message told me to attend the Expo on Saturday, but that seems like a lot to have to do just to see where I can’t drive in my own neighborhood.
Their website claims, “The race features a point-to-point course that starts in Griffith Park at the Los Angeles Zoo (new to 2007) and ends in downtown Los Angeles. Along the route runners will enjoy many of Los Angeles’ civic treasures including the beauty of Griffith Park, the historic Hyperion Bridge, Silver Lake Reservoir, Echo Park Lake and the spectacular skyline of downtown Los Angeles.”
The page with street closures is still not up today, but you can check out the course info and map online and guess from there. I’ve also included it after the jump.
Has anyone at all even HEARD of this event? Seen anything to promote it?
