Subtract some cars and add some sleek and swift bipeds Saturday morning. Let's see what that does for Ygnacio Valley Road traffic.
It's with more than 2,000 racers expected. Gun goes off at 7 a.m. Saturday and most of the course is on Ygnacio Valley. They've got a Facebook page, you bet.
A half-marathon is 13.1 miles. That's those people you see with bumper stickers that read "13.1." The ones with "26.2" bumper stickers are marathoners. Even more slender. Perhaps more obsessive.
The race organizers have 5- and 10-K races going at the same time, too.
Police will close two eastbound lanes of Ygnacio Valley Road between 5 and 11 a.m. Broadway will be closed between Rudgear and Civic Drive from 4:00 a.m. to 7:30 a.m.
The half-marathon starts on South Broadway near Whole Foods.
The County Connection has some special buses to accommodate the hard runners.
