    So happy to hear this. It is unhealthy to run and walk with this air quality. Thank you for rescheduling.

  2. Awww…1st year I won’t be able to participate. Always look forward to the great vibes, fun, and of course free shirt!

    It’s hard to predict the exact time the race will be over, but looking at previous years, likely between 1 and 1:15 p.m.

    This article doesn’t say when the roads will be opened up again. That seems like important information to give us.
