Road Closures


Road Closure Schedule

The road closure grid below is based on a 3:00 min/mile pace for the first racers (hand crank wheelchair) and approximately a 14:00 min/mile pace for the slowest runners. Important notes:

  • After the first, very fast handcrank wheelchair racer, there will be large gaps between other racers, and course monitors will occasionally and very carefully allow some cross traffic.
  • Slower runners might fall behind the reopen times shown below. In such cases, the runners are pedestrians responsible for heeding normal traffic laws.
  • Regular traffic will be allowed on the course by the CHPs reopening the course according to the times in the table below.
  • Folsom-Auburn Road to the north of the start area is closed to through traffic at the intersection of Eureka Road beginning at 4:30 a.m. and reopening at 8:00 a.m. Only vehicles taking runners to the start will be allowed past the Eureka Road intersection.
  • The finish line area around 8th, 9th, and 10th Streets and Capitol Mall will be closed from 6:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
  • The California Highway Patrol mandates the road closures and has ultimate authority on executing the closing and opening of the roads during CIM.
  • The road closure schedule below is subject to change on race day.
