How Will Fitgers 5k Impact Traffic Saturday Morning? Here Are The Details

Saturday, April 21st is the 23rd annual Fitgers 5k in downtown Duluth.  This year there are a record 1,848 registered participants set to run and walk in the morning race.  The Fitgers 5k is one of the first spring road races in the Northland, and a race I enjoy running in despite the hills of the bridge over the freeway.  This race is also the largest fundraising event for the Young Athletes Foundation, a Grandma’s Marathon program focused on the promotion and development of youth athletics in a five-county region.

The race starts at 9am at Fitgers, 600 East Superior Street, where it will also finish.  Expect traffic delays from 8:30am to to 10am along the race course. Streets impacted include East Superior Street from Fitgers to Lake Avenue, Canal Park Drive, Lake Avenue South and Railroad Street (in front of the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center).

I know it’s great to participate in a race with people cheering you on and there’s only a slight chance of a little light rain so come on down and make some noise!  Look for our own Chris Allen at the finish line playing tunes to energize everyone.  Good luck runners and walkers and have fun!
