On Sunday afternoon, December 9th, the fourth annual Southern Village Holiday 5K and 1-Mile Family Fun Run/Walk, presented by Harrington Bank, will begin at 2:00 p.m. The proceeds from this event will benefit the Chapel Hill Service League.
For the safety of the runners and walkers, it will be necessary to restrict traffic on the streets where the race is being run.
Both the one-mile and the 5K runs begin and end at the Market Green. The 5K starts at 2 pm, and the one-mile begins at 3 pm. The streets that are involved are: Greenview to Arlen Park, Parkside Circle, Copperline, Park View Cresent, Highgrove, Hillspring, Westside, Glade, Glenhaven, Graylyn and Aberdeen. We regret any inconvenience it may cause, but we hope that by alerting you in advance, we can minimize any problem.
We also ask that you tie up the family pet that afternoon. Even though your dog may not bite, it would not be a good idea for either man or beast if a dog got in the middle of a pack of 300 runners.
Finally, we ask that you move your cars off of the streets to permit the runners more room in which to run.
The streets will be closed only while the runners are passing and will be opened as soon as the last runner in each race passes. No one section of the course will be closed for more than 30 minutes at any one time. All streets will be open to full traffic no later than 3:30 p.m. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
