Downtown lane closures during marathon

The 17th annual Casper Marathon route has been modified this year to include a portion of the downtown area where signs and flaggers will be present to provide visibility to drivers and safety for race participants.

The marathon starts at 6 a.m. at the Casper Events Center. Runners will hit the downtown area at mile 10 as they leave the path after going under the overpass on First Street. Single lane closures will be in effect from 6:30 a.m. to noon for the following streets.

Runners will turn south on David Street. Runners will turn west on 2nd Street passing David Street Station and continue on East 2nd to turn south on Walnut and west on Midwest. Half -marathon runners will turn around right before Poplar Street and run back the same way they came. Full marathon and marathon relay runners will cross Poplar to connect with the trail system. Casper police officers will be present at Midwest and Poplar to provide traffic control. The runners will finish the rest of the race using the Platte River Trails pathway out to Paradise Valley and ultimately finish at Crossroads Park.

Feel free to come cheer the runners on or better yet, it’s still not too late to register (runwyoming.com). The race currently has runners coming from 34 states, as well as Canada and Spain.

Shorter distance part of marathon

The Casper Marathon has added a shorter distance. The cost for this distance is $45 and a commemorative T-shirt is provided to the first 50 people that register. The route starts at the Casper Events Center at 7 a.m. and ends at Crossroads Park. It is a little over 5.8 miles and is stroller and kid-friendly. Food, beverages and live music are plentiful at the finish line. First, second and third place finisher prizes are provided by 307 Metal Works.
