The police will be on hand to direct traffic around the street closings and insure both the motorists’ and competitors’ safety with a minimum of inconvenience to the motorists. Businesses will be able to conduct their normal activities and are encouraged to become involved in the race.
Possible stages of involvement can include setting up water stations along the course, giving door prizes or coupons as random prize drawings at the awards ceremony, participating in the race, and race sponsorships.
