Mayor Encourages Support for Half-Marathon

Some streets will be closed for November 3 race

Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird today encouraged residents turn out in support of the Good Life Halfsy half-marathon Sunday, November 3. About 6,500 runners will participate in the race, which begins at 8:30 a.m. at Seacrest Field and ends at the Railyard. The route, list of cheer stations and more information are available at goodlifehalfsy.com.

"There are easier ways to see our beautiful community than running through 13.1 miles of it-but you wouldn't have thousands of our enthusiastic residents cheering along the way," Mayor Gaylor Baird said. "Whether you are wearing a race bib or ringing a cowbell, the Good Life Halfsy is a celebration everyone in Lincoln can enjoy."

Police will control intersections along the race route, and the public is advised to plan ahead for traffic delays. The Antelope Valley trail will be closed from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. from Randolph to Court streets. South-bound 70th Street will be closed from 8 to 11 a.m. from "O" Street to Pioneers Boulevard. Southbound 56th, 48th and 40th streets will be closed at Normal Boulevard from approximately 9 a.m. to noon. North and southbound drivers are encouraged to use 84th and 27th streets, and eastbound and westbound drivers are encouraged to use "O" Street and Pioneers Blvd. to bypass the race course.

Additional street closures are as follows:
