Saturday's marathon to force road closures around campus

There will be several Vanderbilt-area road closures on Saturday due to the St. Jude Country Music Marathon and half Marathon.

The closures include: West End Avenue, from 31st Avenue to 21st Avenue, from 3-9 a.m.; West End Avenue, from 21st Avenue to 16th Avenue, from 6 -9 a.m. and Broadway, from 16th Avenue to 2nd Avenue, from 6 -9:15 a.m.

The Broadway and Demonbreun off/on ramps of I-40 will also be closed during the same time period.

During road closures, the best route to and from Vanderbilt is to use the 21st Ave South exit on I-440, rather than the West End Ave exit.

Detailed information including a course map, road closure grid, no park zones, alternate directions, and an interactive map also are available at http://runrocknroll.competitor.com/nashville/road-closures.
