Due to high water on Lewisville Lake and the closure of The Colony Shoreline Trail, there is a new route for this Saturday’s The Colony Half marathon.
The new route will take runners through several new neighborhoods. Motorists are advised there could be traffic delays and street closures for a period of time Saturday morning, Oct. 27. The race begins at 8 a.m. and should be fully completed no later than noon.
Wherever possible, the race route uses portions of bike path or trail to avoid running in the street. The new route includes:
- Starting at Stewart Creek Park and leaving the park to run through the Stewart Peninsula South Shore neighborhood
- Then winding through the Stewart Peninsula North Shore neighborhood
- Then heading east on North Colony to Curry Drive
- Curry Drive to Larner and then out to Main Street
- Main Street to West Lake Highlands and then winding through the Eastvale neighborhood
- Back to Main Street and then heading north to Eastvale Park (Blue Sky) where runners will turn around and head back into town on Main Street
- Turning right onto Larner and then a left on Curry to North Colony
- North Colony back to Stewart Creek Park
A full map of the course is available online.
Several hundred volunteers, as well as The Colony Police Department personnel, will be on hand to manage the race route and work to ensure the safety of runners and motorists alike. If you live or commute in the areas of the race route, please use caution when travelling on Saturday morning, and factor extra time into your commute to avoid being late.
