Plan Ahead for Marathon Street Closures

Thousands of runners, walkers, wheelchairs, bikes and strollers will hit the streets during the third annual Pasadena Marathon Sunday, May 15, starting at 5:45 a.m. The fun community event includes full and half marathons, a 5K/10K, wheelchair stroll and kids’ run, all benefiting Pasadena Forward.

You can avoid the crowd and traffic delays by visiting www.cityofpasadena.net/events in advance to check out street closures, transit detours and more.

Beginning at 5 a.m., Pasadena police will close roads along the entire route, allowing motorists to cross at designated traffic control points.  Each street will be reopened on a rolling basis as soon as the last participant passes through and all course materials have been removed. Watch for “no parking” signs along the route starting at 1 a.m. on race day.  The city will waive overnight parking restrictions and permit requirements that morning so you can park on adjacent streets and cheer for the competitors!
