Runners and fans decend on Geist roads for the morning, causing some partial road closings all morning.
Hosting the 5th Running of the St.Vincent Geist Half Marathon & 5K will be a great opportunity to showcase the beautiful Geist community to thousands of runners and volunteers. But hosting a 13.1 mile event the morning of Saturday, May 18th will also come with some inconveniences for many of you conducting your normal business on a Saturday.
Number of Participants: Over 6,500 participants, 1,000 volunteers (over 10,000 spectators)
Race Time: Road restrictions will begin as early as 5:00 a.m. on race day morning. The Half Marathon will begin at 7:00 a.m. and the 5K will begin at approximately 7:40 a.m. Both races will be completed by 11:00 a.m. See information below or accompanying map for specific information regarding your area of the course.
Partial Road Closures: Participants will be running on one half of the road around most of the course. Some areas will be temporarily closed. If you have plans for race day, please be aware that alternate routes may need to be taken that day.
