The Richmond Police Department asks drivers to be mindful of runners, street closings and parking restrictions for the Ukrop's Monument Avenue 10K this Saturday.
The events begin at 8 a.m. on Saturday, March 29, with the Virginia 529 Kids Run. The first wave of the 10K steps off 8:30 a.m. near Broad and Harrison streets. The 10K's finish line is on Franklin Street next to Monroe Park.
Logistics of the 10K will require numerous street closings and traffic pattern changes throughout the city beginning with parking restrictions starting at 1 p.m. on Friday, March 28. Restrictions and closures will continue until 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 29.
