Monumental Marathon events to affect downtown traffic this Saturday

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – If you’re traveling in downtown Indianapolis this weekend, expect some street closures due to the CNO Financial Indianapolis Monumental Marathon which will include four events Saturday: a full 26.2 mile marathon, a 13.1 mile half marathon, a 5K run and a Kids Fun Run. All events will begin at the intersection of Capitol and Washington Street.

Starting Friday, the Indianapolis officials says crews will close Washington Street between Capitol Avenue to West streets at 7 p.m. to allow for setup.

Then on Saturday, the officials will close many downtown streets on the race routes before 8 a.m., which could cause significant disruption to those traveling through the city as well as near the race route.
