Rodes City Run 2014

Mar 08, 2014

CITY RUN WILL RESTRICT DOWNTOWN CAMPUS ACCESS

  • This year’s Rodes City Run, a 10K that is part of the city’s Triple Crown of Running, has shifted its route this year because of bridge construction.
  • This change will have an impact on the Downtown Campus.
  • The run, which traditionally starts at Fourth and Broadway and finishes on Main Street will now START and FINISH at 1st and Broadway, directly in front of the Downtown Campus.

FRIDAY:

  • On Friday, the Broadway faculty/staff parking lot and the large student lot (Second Street access) will be CLOSED. 
  • The City Run will be setting up for Saturday’s events.
  • However, parking will be available in the Health Sciences Building and Gray Street faculty/staff lots and in the I-65 lot next to Taco Bell as well as the JCTC lot at Hotel Louisville (enter from Jacob) and all student lots along First Street.

SATURDAY:

  • All streets surrounding the college will be CLOSED beginning about 6:30 a.m. on Saturday. Most will not reopen until Noon or so.
  • In addition, more than 6,000 runners are expected to participate in the run, which means parking on surrounding streets will be difficult.

As a result:

  • The Downtown Campus Smith Library will be CLOSED on Saturday, March 8.
