The public can expect minor delays and rolling road and parking lot closures periodically both days to accommodate all races. Detours will be provided for major road closures, and residents are asked to plan ahead to avoid delays.

The majority of Santa Clarita Marathon events will take place on City multi-use trails to reduce the number of street closures, including the West River Trail, South Fork Trail, Chuck Pontius Commuter-Rail Trail, Valencia Paseos and San Francisquito Trail. Residents are encouraged to adjust their trail usage until after the conclusion of all events to avoid interfering with runners on the course.
The following closures will be in effect for Saturday, Nov. 2:

· Magic Mountain Parkway from Tourney Road to Valencia Boulevard will be closed from 5:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Use Valencia Boulevard or Bouquet Canyon Road as a detour.
