PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Officials in Philadelphia have announced a series of road closures ahead of this weekend's Broad Street Run.
The 41st annual 10-miler will kick off at 8 a.m. Sunday. The road closures begin at 3:30 a.m.
Roads will reopen after street sweepers clean the race route. The City expects the course to reopen by 11:30 a.m. with the exception of some areas of Pattison Avenue.
Runners will see a change in the course due to construction at the Navy Yard.
Runners will start at Broad Street and Fisher Avenue in North Philadelphia, then go around City Hall and back to Broad.
The race will finish in front of the NovaCare Complex near Broad and Pattison Avenue in South Philadelphia.
To keep runners safe, spectators are strongly discouraged from gathering on Broad Street.
"We're so excited to welcome back runners to Broad Street and celebrate their hard work and determination! It's a giant step forward for our city to put on an event like this. I wish every runner, virtual and in person, good luck and health," said Kathryn Ott Lovell, Philadelphia Parks & Recreation Commissioner.
