Amplified Sound and Start of Race
To help alleviate some of the noise impacts on surrounding neighbors, this year, the City asked the race organizers to start the race-related activities slightly later than in past years. Amplified sound will be permitted as of 8 a.m. The race will begin at 8:30 a.m. Because the activities are starting 30 minutes later than in past years, the road closures were extended to 11 a.m.
